Tis the time of year to get sailing off the brain, and enter the workshop...and time to clean the boat up and put it away.
As I do this...I wonder if anyone does anything special to winterize their boat.
I store outside under a tarp...bring the sails, centerboard, tiller, mast, and rigging...
It's sad really...today might have been my last sail. Atleast I got my two little girls out on the water today for the first time, I think they enjoyed it too. Here's to a bonus weekend of good weather sometime soon!
I'm pretty sure you will be ok. The owners manual even states...make sure the trailer is still hitched to the vehicle when you get in the boat to step the mast, as weight in the stern may cause the trailer to lift.
