I recently moved the boat from its cradle back onto the trailer (the boat still doesn't fit the trailer but the modifications I made makes it ride a lot better). I needed the boat on the trailer because I wanted to check out the rigging and as the boat was just outside the garage with the power coming into the house at the garage, I didn't think that would be a good place to hoist the mast. The power lines are insulated, BUT... So I moved it to the back of the yard and with three other folks, we got the mast set up and begin working on the rigging. Everything was together except for a piece on the backstay. A friend and I ran down to the hardware store and, right before they shut their doors, we figured out a way to jury-rig the backstay connection so we could test out the sails. We only hoisted the mainsail (It was quite windy and that was a challenge). Overall, the boat is looking good and I am ready to sail it, but when I hoist the mast again, I want at least four strong guys and hopefully one will have a little extra height.
I also posted this picture on Facebook and a high school classmate of mine responded, "that's what I need, a boat with training wheels."
