June 24th 2007.
The TRIJUL has touhed the water! However it is not yet ready to sail... I spent 2 days at the dock lacing the trampolines, raising the mast, cutting sheets, installing furlers, etc etc etc... Everything is going smooth, even the folding and unfolding of the floats.
The outboard works like a charm, the centerboard goes up and down as it should, the rudder blade too. The boat feels so light it is increadible. It feels like a dinghy!
I still have to finish the bowsprit and the boom before I go sailing.
The 50km trip to the launch site ( Vaudreuil Quebec) with the trailer went smooth. The trailer is still incomplete but is good enough for the road. I will complete it in the next few weeks.
