Jupiter’s loading date has been delayed again – now April 5th. The boat is ready to go – excepting the last minute preparations that cannot yet be accomplished, as is the crew. The hull has been waxed, all systems have been checked and double checked. The crew is exchanging their tropical attire for gear better suited to the conditions of the Pacific Northwest. Although it is recommended not to wrap the boat, or even use covers, which could be shredded in high winds, the upper helm seats and the electronic equipment were shrink-wrapped yesterday.
