Soliloquy visit

Spent Saturday afternoon at Coyote Point Marina helping Dennis and Mary prep Soliloquy for her maiden sail. Ed and I head raised Dennis up the mast in a bosun's chair. He needed to work on freeing the mainsail halyard as it was stuck at the pulley on the top of the mast. Yikes... better him than me. He tried to fix the mast lights as well, but they're too far gone for repair. How does one drill out and tap new screws 20' feet above the deck of bobbing sailboat?

Soliloquy is a 27' sailboat and she's a beauty. Built in '72 she has some hours, but doesn't show her age like I do...
