It has been three years since the top two feet of Moontide's Main mast snapped off in light winds.
Those of you who have followed our odd odyssey of discovery of decay and the repair that our little Mariner has undergone over these several years will be relieved to know...
We have Masts!
Through much effort, expense, and a lot of help from our friends, our mizzen was stepped in our slip at Pirate's Cove on July 21.
(See the latest entries under "Restoration - 2014" on the website)
Today, 8/05/14, the main mast, at long last, was stepped in the ways at Rocky Pointe Boat Yard.
Our special thanks go the folks at Rocky Pointe for their help and advice, to Jason Bent, Dar Nelson, and Kim Winkler, who were integral in helping us step both masts, To the Pirate Crew of Royaliste, who relinquished a day of work on their own boat to help us, and to the incredibly generous people of Pirate's Cove whose generosity of Spirit, kindness, and encouragement helped us to persevere when times were tough over the last several years.
Moontide Looks like a boat again!
Now if we can only figure out where the damn oil leak is on the engine!!!
