Our boat a S2 7.9 is 31 years old and starting to need more work. She is at the shop now for some minor repairs and I hope to get the mast painted next week. Here are some pics of Skyhawk at the shop. First race May 4th if the ice goes out in time!
At least mentally, things are warming up. My Boat Skyhawk goes into the hospital for some repairs next Thursday. We plan to fix a paint issue and some cracks here and there as well as a few blisters, along with painting the mast and boom.
We had our crew meeting last night and hope to improve all around in our racing skills. We are in the top 3 to 5 in our fleet of 14 S2 7.9's at Wayzata and set a goal to win a couple of the series. We normally miss a 3 of our races at Wayzata due to racing the Chicago Mac race each year for the past 10 years. The boat we raced on is up for sale, so we will pore more into our own campaign this year!
My Phantom 2 has not arrived yet....delayed due to demand, but is on it's way
