Scout’s at the Dinghy Doctor

While waiting for Scout, we tackled two jobs.

The aft deck sunscreen.

When we had the dodger and bimini made, CA asked Dan at Wavestopper Dodgers to add some extra zippers in the bomini. She made the starboard-side sunshade which zips onto the bimini and provides ample cooling shade for the aft cabin. 

In principle, she needs to make one for the port side, too. But the companionway is on the starboard side, and that’s where the biggest benefit seems to be.

I rearranged the vent hose for the Nature’s Head. That’s a 10’ section of hose from McMaster-Carr.

Water is not running from the deck vent up that loop and down to the head. 

Yes, it’s fair to partly ugly.

But.

No more worries about what happens when rain overpowers the deck scuppers.
