This weekend should be the first sail for me on 'The Sorcerer' and I feel unusually nervous. It's rare for me to feel like this but perhaps it's the not knowing just quite how the boat will perform. A few jobs left to do - check glow plugs, load up with food, re-wire batteries cure the rain water leak and land the seagull engine (anybody want one?). I'm still not sure if I have the right ropes in the right place or just how the boom should be rigged. Marinemegastore have failed to deliver a new transducer for the log and contacting them seems to be impossible. Oh well, I guess I just have to go for it. Salcombe and back looks like a reasonable shakedown. Anybody else feel the same?
