Winter Projects...

We will be hauling Icon out of the water for the months of December and January. Northern Marine has kindly consented to let us put her inside (with her mast removed) so that we can get our punch-list finished out of what is turning out to be a wet & wild winter!

Some of the items on our punch list include:

  • Inspecting the mast
  • Replacing the backstay
  • Rebuilding the forward head
  • Replacing the portlights
  • Replacing all the lifelines
  • Replacing the kevlar rub strips on the boom
  • Building a new Satcom & GPS arch
  • Fixing the main hatch
  • Plus many little items
We plan on being back in the water by the end of January and in time for our first event in February (the AYC Foul Weather Cruise)...
