More Alice Gale photo’s from launch day.

Alice Gale has been out a few times since launching on Sept 8th.   I have been working on sail trim details and developing ideas to improve the sailing experience.   I also updated the blog with several additional building details.   New blog details posted include the building of a laminated mast guide, and trailer upgrades to allow shallow boat ramp launching using an extension.   Here are a few additional photo’s taken on launch day.   Soon I will have more photo documentation of Alice Gale sailing.

Sail Loft

I ordered my sails in early  December and got this picture of the finishing touches being applied from the loft.   I ordered sails from Doyle Sails in San Francisco.  Bill Colombo, is putting the finishing touches on the  mainsail.
