Put some new paint on the bottom of Erin (Merva’s tender). I also put some new varnish on the transom.
Started preparing the mast for new varnish but soon decided to remove the mast for this. I was surprised to find that it is cedar. It came off quickly and I soon had 2 coats of varnish on it. It will need more coats before I put it back on.
I have been riding Molly’s mountain bike (down/up Sandy Hook) for physio (knee). This has been working well but I was happy to hear that my road bike was ready. I picked it up today and went for the down/up Sandy Hook ride straight away. The gears are modest for this bike but I still wondered if I would be able to make it back up given my current fitness level. It was harder than the mountain bike but I was able to stand up and crank on it (and the knee was fine) so I made it up with no problem. This will be my main physio for the next week for two and then I will hit the open road.
Joined friends for a 61st birthday party. Nice, kinda post COVID, social. Perfect sunset.
