I sailed Spirit around the harbor and along the coast for a year or so. After this time I decided to make a few more changes, not so many as the last lay up though. I changed the cabin hatch to a raised one so that I would have standing room inside, a useful feature when staying overnight anywhere, I made the pullpit less in height, added a boom vang and a cockpit brace to run the main sheets from. All the lines could be controlled now from the cocpit which is needed for solo sailing.
Spirit was now quite comfortable inside and easily rode out any rough weather I met.
