Our refit is now very close to completion. This week Precision completed the stemhead, anchor roller and windlass on deck, the cabin sole below and the mast was stepped.

Another job done this week was to apply our new sail numbers. Zen Again is now F88, the same Fremantle Sailing Club number we had on our previous boats Critical Path and Degrees of Freedom.
The last major job Precision is doing is constructing a mainsheet arch. We'll have a traveller-less dual mainsheet system as we did on Degrees of Freedom. Work on the arch is well underway and hopefully it will be fitted next week. On Monday we'll finish setting up the rig, "key" the Coppercoat antifoul and fit the anodes. On Tuesday morning the boat is booked to be relaunched. She'll stay in a pen here at Boat Lagoon for at least a month.
