At last it's spring in Chicago, though one might have been fooled by the snow falling on Monday morning. Happily, we've had enough warm weather to dive into the fitting out of my new Rondar USA 9042.

Craig and I spent a lot of time talking over the winter about the rigging philosphy of the boat and what systems we thought needed to be implemented. The boat borrows heavily from Craig's own layout on USA 7346, but has been adapted to the particulars of the Rondar. Overall, we've found the Rondar to be easy to layout as the wide centerboard cap gives you a lot of options for placing hardware. The width allows clean leads on the various purchase systems and helps keep them out of the way of the crew.

Here are a few pictures of our progress:
