Six members came out to finish off the Byte sailboats owned by the club.  Gluing a couple pieces of daggerboard trunk guide felt and some longer halyard lines for two of the Bytes is all that is required to finish the project.

Thanks to Hamish and Frances Ferguson, Dave Mills, Don Snell, Pierre Moskaluk and Roger Bouchard for helping to finish up this years only project.  The project started in January with building of three dollies, repair to the Bytes and ordering necessary replacement parts.  The boats now have launching dollies and two of the three have top deck covers.  All boats are in ready to sail condition and are great easy to manhandle single hand or with crew sailboats.  They are a little smaller than a Laser and also smaller sail size.
