Ok, I thought I'd share some pics here for everyone:

Sailing near Anacapa and Santa Cruz Islands

Right after we passed Point Conception--motor sailing in the calm evening. A bit of swell but no wind.

These are great pictures. Finally it looks like you are enjoying your lovely boat and all this work is justified.

Thanks. We are enjoying our schooner and she seems to be a dream in terms of seaworthy performance--we cannot complain as we have met many cruising couples "making do" with far less performance than we enjoy. All the the work--probably not justifiable but definitely rewarding to know that (most) things we've built/fixed/rebuilt et.al are performing wonderfully and looking great, too.

Hello Redbopeep. Very nice fotos indeed. Particularly liked your bowsprit netting. Just extended bhe bowsprit to 25 ft on the RIMA and fly three jibs, but crew have to hank the sails onto that standing rigging. Its a dangerous shin out even for my super agile filippinos. Where did you get the plans for the nettting and hows it rigged. We may go cruising south Palawan and north Sabah next month at the start of the southwest monsoon, but I miss commercial fishing and seriously thinking of trading in for a 42 mini keel trawler to fish pacific approaches in Philippines.

Cheers - jibsail. Camiguin Island, Philippines.

Hi, Rima,

I edited your post to remove link to commercial site as CL does not allow such personal commercial links in our posts. You can upload a picture to your post, btw.

We also hank on the jib. You can make use of tricing lines and downhauls to make it a bit safer, btw. The pic showing the jib in a little bundle at the end of the sprit--that is because the tricing line is hauled tight. Once we release the tricing line and pull on the halyard, the jib can be set.

The netting was made by my hubby and me. That is simply New England Rope (3 strand polyester, not nylon as it stretches too much) in 1/2" size, the side-to-side lengths are spliced into soft eyes that are then seized onto the bowsprit shrouds with polyester marlin using a square lashing. We have a running bobstay, so we could not seize to it, but many people also do that. The fore-and-aft netting lines are clove hitched onto the side-to-side lines. Some people do other things, but this worked for us. We left some parts "undone" in that the fore-and-aft netting lines should be secured to an eye on the hull itself or onto another side-to-side line--but because our bowsprit pivots up (shipping bowsprit) we must keep the net loose where most people would have it secured tightly. I hope that is helpful to you.

Regards,
