The mariners bag you've been waiting for.

Constructed of the best materials available.
Assembled by hand by a gifted sailmaker and sailor.

Only complaint...I can't find room for my sauerkraut sandwich.
Sure seems to fit all kinds of other essentials.

Get yours before they're all gone.
Designed by Marc Hughston, Santana Sailing owner / instructor. Long Beach.

April 1st
boats go in the water and lessons begin.

Using the Provo Marina's mast crane to get the job done.
Lots of folks mention how slow the crane winch is.
Can't argue that...unless you use a cordless drill, fitted with a 10" extension and socket.
Make sure your drill batteries are topped off.
You don't need a heavy duty lifting strap to attach to the crane hook.
Just make sure it makes at least a 3' loop. (6' length)
Your mast will likely be 75 lbs - 170 lbs.
If you do the re-creation of Marines lifting the flag on Iwo Jima,
and a wind comes up...somebody could get hurt.
Play it safe.
Many in our sailing community donated time, talent and means,
so that you could have a safe and controlled mast stepping experience.
Thanks to all who have contributed to this marina upgrade.

Rusty Buster!

Friday April 12. 6 - 8 PM
