Well today, I finally got around to raising my flag Halyard. Up to now, I have always tied my flags to the starboard upper stay with cable ties.
First I had to climb the mast to my spreaders before I was able to raise the flag.
Much easier and better!
This morning I took 20 photos of all the serial numbers on my gear from various items of electronics through to my dinghy. I had heard a case of a cruiser who had some items stolen from his boat and the police recovered the items but then demanded that the cruiser furnish serial numbers before they would return the items to him.
So an Allied Seawind 30 named Crackertail pulled in behind me.
