Looks pretty good at the dock. I do have to ask though, why you would leave it on the back. If its as heavy as you way it really ought to be stored on top of the keel bolts. Racing, after all?

You are right from a racing perspective, but it was not easy to mount the cassette at the dock, and at night in big seas it would be nice to be able to just drop the rudder into the cassette. Will see how it works at Patos, if it catches a stern wave it will have to go below. We will remove it for the buoy racing.
One favourable thing is we have a tendency to be bow heavy on trim.

Raven's refit is almost complete. Strait Marine' s capabilities are very impressive. Having the boat on a castor mounted cradle and being able to wheel the boat inside a climate controlled shop was great. Also added a backstay flicker and a windex light, rebuilt the deck around the chainplates, replaced the fuel tank. The keel, rudder & sail drive were coated with EP2000 using an airless applicator.

Next year I plan to do the hull in EP2000 white so it will look like a sunnyside egg!

You just don't want "sunny side up", I'd hesitate to be "over easy" too...

Looking good, it's going to be a new boat!

The main task was removing the internal frame, cleaning it all up and then rebonding to hull. When Jack Rabbit went through the same process the boat was faster, looking forward to getting back in the water.

Well a year has rolled by and the boat is out of the water for maintenance rather than repair for a change. Will be removing the San Francisco paint - (Proline 1088) and going to EP2000 for the hull, same paint we have had on the foils for a couple of years.
