Re-installed the jib (back from North Sails - leech line re-threaded). Re-measure the mast (yard had recorded 60ft!!) to 64.3 ft - just possible to make the Inter-Coastal fixed bridge heights of 65ft (with one at 64 ft)! Provisioned and finally ready to go - choosing the ICW route south to Morehead City due to weather offshore and unable to find a 3rd crew to round Cape Hatteras. We'll just have to manage the 64 ft briidge at low tide, no wash and holding our breath - of course it would be almost the last briodge on the 200 SM journey south (Wilkerson)!
