Masts Down.....

Brown Eye's Masts
The masts have now been 'stepped' on Brown Eyes and she has been moved over to Fox's Marina ready for having her hull resprayed.
Looking a bit different without covers, masts or sails.
I also removed the cockpit covers and these have now been repaired where the UV sunlight had deteriorated the stitching.  Later in the week I plan to look at a used main-sail.  Hopefully, if it is in good condition, that will then become the "in use" sail and then the current one will be stowed away as a spare.  The current sail is still usable, but is now getting quite old and has several repairs.
All ready for her respray
Hopefully, once Brown Eyes is back at Neptune I can get on with some of the cosmetic work inside and start making preparations for a circumnavigation of the UK later this year.
