The bowsprit is back on.

After being off the boat for a month and a half, I finally got the bowsprit back on. There were a couple of hang ups along the way, but it now got 5 coats of epoxy on the spar, a new double anchor roller, a new bobstay and whisker stays, a redrilled and bushed headstay eye on the kranze iron, a new inner forestay base plate and, a new 2 color nav light, new wiring and to top it all off I was finally able to mount the SL Seatiger windlass that I've been sitting on for the last 10 months.

I wanted to get the mast back on the boat this weekend, but I caught my finger in a router table on Sunday, so my time table is pushed back a bit. Still I hope to get the mast back on and Bodhran out sailing soon.
