After all of our hard work involved with the new parachute anchor chain plates, I had hoped for some spectacular photos for the final post on their installation. Instead, as we are swamped with chores in these final days as landlubbers, I could only snap a few photos of one newly installed plate, and not even take the time to clean off the caulking!
A few days before, I had been inside the bow, helping Wil re-bed the forward most stanchion, when I noticed how great the parachute anchor backing plate looked. I was going to return with a camera, but Wil had fiber-glassed the opening before I could get the shot. The tips of our bows are now the completely sealed, watertight compartments that they should be. One job done. Check!
