Rigged Up (Sorta)

I'm glad I decided to rig up the spars before launching.  Turned out to be a few more issues (let's call them new challenges) than I thought there would be.  The headstay is too short.....the knuckle head in charge of measuring (that would be me) should be keel hauled.  The topping lifts are chafing against the lower shrouds and will have to be re-routed.  And the radio frequency interference from the Orca LED tri-color is killing the VHF and AIS reception.  Will address these and bend on the mains'l next week.
