Whimsey

Sadly, we are putting our lovely Whimsey up for sale. Considering a move out west
this year and if we go ahead, it doesn't make sense to keep her.
Anyone have a friend who might be in the market for this beautiful sloop?

A "Hinkley" thing

It hit me as I was getting our Pilot ready to launch this spring, just how people react to these old girls.

I was talking to a very nice man who was working on his sailboat a few boats down from mine. He was telling me the old story we've all heard about how his boat had very little bright work as he didn't want to be a slave to it.

Dutchman System

I am having a small problem with the Dutchman system on Whimsey. When I drop the main sail a
Small section on the end of the main collapses over the wheel (and anyone standing or sitting there).
Is this normal? No one here seems to have any experience with this system.

"so here's an update;  when the yard actually looked at one of the chain plates, they were surprised to find that it was in excellent condition.  They went on to admire the unusual design.  Whew."
