Boom back on the boat!

Got the boom back on the boat uneventfully....it's still heavy!!  Painted with several coats of Petit EasyPoxy.  Nice paint but hard to work with in the 90+ degree heat.  Pretty and white again.  And no broken welds or corrosion now!

 In case you noticed, we turned the boom upside down because it was easier to rea-assemble most of the attached hardware with it in that position.  It was easy to turn it the correct way for the final installation.

About 5 hours later the sail is back in place, the lines are run thru the boom and the new zipper is once again functional in the sailcover.   Was more difficult than I expected!
