Ah, I worked Saturday and Sunday again so the Wasps are still in residence. As for relaunching Scott, it's on my mind daily. I will have to re-do all new rigging on the exterior ropes. It's possible some will be okay but I don't sail on just okay anymore. Do it right or stay in port till you can do ...

Under sail, right of way. My vote.

However I would scoot out of the way as fast as possible just to be on the safe side. A sub could be real hard on the bottom paint.

A family boat, day sailor. Yuo that would be your C22. Do not mix your two boats together I don't think that would make you very happy.

Buy The C22 Cheap and build it back up the way you want it.

I've only helped once, so I was more like an assistant at best. I would expect to pay $300 to $500 US to have the parts made in stainless.
