Billy Liberty, a sailmaker for Quantum in Connecticut, had handled a general upgrade for Cool Breeze, and although the deck exhibited the filled-in-holes of any well-used J/29, the gear and rigging hed put in place looked sweet. The mast had been stepped on Friday and shrouds tuned, but we had to set up all of the halyards and other running rigging, which was hot work, yet pleasant because so much of it was brand new, low-stretch, and lightweight. It was good brainwork, some of it, too. My favorite was figuring out how to sort out the blocks and lines for the mainsheet, which had a double-ended fine-tune. Like any desk jockey, I also enjoy any chance to use my Gerber (multi-tool), and it was in regular demand this day.
