Jacob and Tristan did some great sailing in the "Your Name Here" Regatta. They represented Challenger, Ship #145 and did really great! They came in 6th overall, qualifying in 3rd place from Northern California - meaning they can very likely go to the International Sea Scout Regatta next year on the East Coast!!
While visiting the folks in Wyoming, my dad made new frames for two of our salon hatches which had started to delaminate due to water damage. My dad's got an amazing shop with all the tools needed for this sort of a project. The hatches were made out of teak with a bit of a history (this teak was purchased in the 80's by Atari, believe it or not). Here's a couple of pictures dry fitting them after sanding, along with one of the "wood" side of the shop. Don't have pictures of them varnished and permanently installed yet.
