LWF until back started hurting again. Same area, but nothing like last Saturday. It got kind of sore yesterday after lots of uphauling. Today, I was able to waterstart more, but not all the time. I was dreading uphauling, so I toned it down to HTs.

I needed more power to plane so I rigged the Goya W3D. It rigs on a 200-202 boom, but the Chinook only extends to 198. I rigged it with minimal downhaul and 1cm of positive outhaul (AB style). It worked (sort of) and I planed a little more today. Hopefully, the MS tailpiece will be here this week.

Sailed until I had too much motorboat wake and humanity. Left my sandals on the beach. They got confiscated, and I had to ask for them back...great. No auto damage today, just close and double parking. Made it out of there without a scratch :)
