Downrig is Over!!!

On Saturday we housed the main topmast.  We also sent all of its stsnding rigging down as well.  This is the last big spar we needed to take down.  The next step for us is to get as many coats of varnish and paint on the various parts of the brig as we can before the snow flies.  The 75 degree weather and the lack of rain has been very good for us lately.  Hopefully it will continue this week.
