Hello,

Getting my Schooner, Bluenose ready to sail at a big Event next month.
Rigged the boat up and gave her a real good inspection.
Amazing what I found!, Rigging cord frayed nearly through, Stainless Steel cables chafed and worn and lots of other things in need of attention.

Most of the things I found wrong would not have been noticed at the Lakeside, only found them by sitting down at the side of the boat and having a real close look.
At the Lakeside, folk are chatting and asking questions, its all a bit of a rush to get the boat rigged and into the water, no time to sit and check that all is well with the gear.

From now on the boat will get the once over more often, will save any red faces from things which should have been noticed at Home!!!.

John.
