Reinforcing the compression post

One thing you can never compromise on a sail boat is safety. We aren’t comfortable with how small/thin our compression post is, so we are putting in reinforcement! Here is the before picture. Project starts today.


Later in the day the reinforcement was in! Ellamae was excited for her new ballet dance prop.


…and we measured (note black markings) all 3 kid’s heights! It will be fun to see the difference after we’ve sailed around the world.


And our final step (day two) extra strength and beautification. And yay, completed in just 2 days! Great job Christian.
