Update in the Arch for the Sailboat

MORGAN RADAR ARCH TRUSSI spoke to “arch man”, aka Jim, this evening regarding our arch for the rear of the sailboat. It is still is process and should be ready for him to install in the next few weeks. Jim is a good guy, and really meticulous about his work. He’s the kind of guy that works really slowly, measures three times before cutting, and takes about double the time you might think a project should take, but from what we hear and what we see, his work is second to none. Along with being meticulous, he is also a bit expensive. The arch will end up costing us a bit north of $10,000, but it will be so strong that you could practically lift the stern of the boat with it. It will also incorporate dinghy davits to lift our tender and outboard, a mount for our radar, and mounts for our solar panels. In the end, it will be really worth it.
