Organizing all the parts

There are or course tons of parts. It took a while to remove all the CNC-cut plywood pieces, and to figure out where to put everything.

There was (and still is) a big pile of random plywood scraps to get rid of.

I went to pick up my Pocketship kit

I drove down to Annapolis to pick up my kit and a few other items. Fortunately my Skerry’s boat trailer carried the kit just fine, so I did not have to rent a van or trailer.

Because of Coronavirus, I couldn’t visit CLC’s showroom or check out their Pocketship, which was sitting under a tarp on its trailer in the parking lot. So I was at CLC for only 20 minutes or so. I also did some shopping at Fawcett Boat Supplies and West Marine, a couple of miles down the road.

It tool a while to unpack everything when I got home.

Making a set of sails

We sewed up a mainsail and jib from Sailrite kits. We had previously made the sail for our Skerry, and it’s not nearly as hard as you might think, provided you have a good sewing machine.
