    I'm assuming you mean the holes? Woodpeckers!

    Yep... we don't got wood peckers here in SA. Looks like someone got happy with a rifle!

    I named my boat "Tag You're It" because that's what it felt like as the previous owner handed it over.

    "Tag, you're it! The money pit is your problem now."

    I have to say, you already look and sound like a seasoned sailor. You have made some great choices. The best one was wasting no time in getting out there and going sailing.

    Thanks for sharing your adventure and pictures of that beautiful boat.
