As the wind returns, so does the progress on our Abaco Dinghy. Dandy is almost finished. We decided not to mix paints again to try to achieve the melon/mango color, so the trim is now bright orange. We've had so many compliments already.
There is supposed to be a dinghy race this Sunday, but after a few days of calmer weather, we are expecting gale winds and temperatures in the 60's for several days starting this weekend. That's not very good to race in, so they will most likely be postponed. That will give us time to paint the bottom of Dandy black, to complete its new look. I didn't get a chance to get a photo of the mast and boom, but the ends of it have been painted like our candy striped lighthouse, which makes it even prettier....or should I say 'dandier'? It's all about the details!
