As far as I know, she is ready for a light wind sail to see what else needs changed, adjusted, added, modified and so on.

I have not looked at all the sails yet, as she came with 7 of them, so I may be changing the sail (s) as I get to looking at all of them.

Maybe, Saturday morning I will go out, maybe. Depends on the weather, and my schedule.

I changed the flooring cover in her cockpit to a two 3/4" heavy rubber black mats with drain ridges running back to the double floor drains, with the traveler in between them, flush with the top of the mats. Looks 6000% better than it was.

Also added a fridge / freezer and a microwave to the galley. My wife just rolled her eyes. She has gotten really pissy about all this boat cleaning. Last fall she was pissed when I handed her a boat to clean, and then I trade boats, and hand her another project. Now I am buying the dirtiest boat yet, which I will hand to her. lol

I hear ya on the wife-cleaning thing. We just had the Oday ready after 16 hours of scrubbing and we returned her as we had bought Seaweed. I won't begin to describe the cleaning we have already done to the cabin, and still not done.

Would like to see those mats. So far we have nothing in either boat. Went to a nautical flea market a month ago. So big they bussed us in from off site parking. I'm talking bigger than a county fair. Arrived early and by noon the heat, thousands of people, plus an armload of stuff had us out the gate. Half way to the bus I saw this guy w/ sweet woven mats. April asked where he got them, "Down at the far end, $20 for two". I wasn't going back in for them but of coarse now I wish like hell I did.

Sailing friend of mine came to the CM32 sloop today for a shake down inspection. He helped me figure out what to change to bring all lines to the cockpit.

That will be the only changes I will make to her sailing wise this season. A tripple powerclutch is three hundred bucks! The new rigging will cost about a grand I figure.

Triple power clutch sounds cool and I'm not even sure what it does!! Laughing

Interested to see how you re-rigg her.

I posted that from my iPad, and it looks to have changed the word for me. lol
Tripple Rope Clutch

Above is an example

Funny, everyone goes on and on about no ropes on a sailboat. lol

Now it makes sense. Guess I wrongfully included them in the cam cleat category. Only been on one boat that had them. Long time ago and we always ended up margaritavated.

Seems like the ones I saw were not as high tech looking. Possibly less $$??

Not sure if the XTS series meets your needs but the specs look the same and knocks a Benjamin off the price??

Margaritavated? Now there's a word you don't see every day. What's its origin and meaning?

Breakfast concluded. Will quickly grill some jalapenos and poblanos for green chili cheese chicken and hamburgers tonight, drress for biking, bike 10 miles, cool, shower, haul ass to the lake. It's blowing like hell right now--wife commented on it--meaning she's more than a bit concerned about the wind..

BTW, that joke was a good one--send picture of boat and motor to...That one got a genuine LOL!
