I stayed back and went to the marina and made a couple of trips with Jerry cans to put 24 gallons of diesel in the tank and then another 24 gallons on the deck. The price of diesel here is $2.20 a gallon. Back at GTC it was $3.71 a gallon. I'll do the water tomorrow.
I visited with Ian awhile and he took me on a tour of his Catalina 322. WOW it really is laid out nice and great storage. The interior is very comfortable and roomy and lots of storage. I think he said that in one locker he had placed 22 18-packs of beer in it before departing to the Bahamas.
The day has been nice and sunny and in the 70s with light 5 - 10 knot winds. Very nice. I did make up a new control line for the Genoa today. I had bought a 100' of ½ inch line several years ago for Luna Sea but never used it. I was able to use that line for the new control line. The control line is 76' long with the core removed from the first 39' so it will all fit on the drum when the sail is fully deployed.
I'm going to install it later today or tomorrow And try wrapping it in the other direction - the direction preferred in the installation manual and see if it works better. Unfortunately that will put the sun-protecting strip on the inside, but for a few weeks that will be fine.
No plans for the evening yet but we will do something - hmmmm maybe Mexican Train Dominoes ehhh!
