That wasn't too bad, after all.
After replacing the pump, we bent on the main sail. It took the rest of the afternoon as we had to install the stack pack, slide in all the battens and rig the reefing lines and then make sure everything was right. It was getting dark and we were hungry, so we decided to call it a day and hoist the jib and Code 0 tomorrow morning. Once all the sails are on we'll be ready to leave.
Go figure, though, now none of the lights in the port hull work. We must of jostled something getting the battens out. As I always say, if it's not one thing it's another. I'll fix it soon.
Our destination tomorrow is Agua Verde, a nice anchorage that we visited on our northbound cruise this spring. The weather forecast is for light winds, but who knows, maybe we'll get lucky.
