After all that…IT DOESN’T FIT. Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 408

It feels like everything lately has been one step forward, two steps back, including one of our most challenging projects of the haulout: Replacing our furler motor. As difficult as it was though, I really enjoy projects like this that involve a lot of creativity. A lot of stars had to align to make this one happen including tracking down a retired Swiss guy who used to make the original parts and getting him to dig them up from his basement and send them to me 😂 and I’m super happy with how it all turned out in the end.

We had a lot of victories in the yard, but lots of set backs as well, and as is usually the case with boat projects everything was taking longer than we had hoped for. So with the clock ticking we decided to bust out the big guns, and we welcomed Super Ryan back to save the day.
