Another good day, though cold and densely foggy. I started the day aloft, helping to guide and clear the fore t'gallant mast on its way up to its seat. There was a bit more standing around than any of us were really planning, but the job got done, and the boat is now as tall as she's going to get. We also finished running out the jibboom and got it lashed into place. The bosun came up with a brilliant method for getting the entire lashing bar tight involving a couple rig tackles working on one another. The jibboom is set, the masts are up and we're apparently a little ahead of schedule.
