Surreal Pirates

Last week, I mentioned our jib was stolen. But stolen very neatly, with all the jib-lines re-rigged and coiled down. That was really weird.

Today we went to the job to move to a slip a little further away from the entry gate, to be more secure. As pyr8queen, Blink-the-miraculously-unwounded and I walked up, I joked "Wouldn't it be funny if the jib were back?" She stopped dead in her tracks and I bumped into her back like something out of a Scooby Doo episode. She was just staring at the boat.

Lo and behold - the jib was back. Removing the thing is not an easy operation, but putting it back up is even less so. And it was furled up on the furler, with the lines re-rigged and coiled down, shipshape and Bristol-fashion.

Weirdest goddamn thing.

That's awesome. Maybe someone who has a similar boat just needed to "borrow" one for a day - perhaps theirs was ripped or otherwise out of commission.
