Finally! A New (Old) Boom

The long sailing hiatus of Training Wheels is finally coming to an end! No more having to be satisfied with motor cruises and BBQs on the bay. We found a replacement boom last week.

Lynn Meissen from the yacht club called the First Mate to inform her of a couple of derelict boats slated for removal in Morro Bay.  The First Mate immediately dropped what she was doing and headed over to the dock to check it out!  What did she find, but an old Coronado 25 in pretty poor shape.  Lucky for Training Wheels, it's boom looked great. Problem solved.

Already got it primed and the first coat of paint on just in time for an overnight sail with 4 other boats this weekend to San Simeon. Can't wait for another adventure. Should have an interesting post when we get back.
