[Another overall view of Sunspot]

Another overall view of Sunspot. Notice how much the windvane sticks out from the stern. This is necessary for proper operation, but it makes it vulnerable to getting hit by boats entering or leaving nearby slips. In three years, the windvane has been hit at least three times. Two of the times, the sacrificial break-away tube was bent and had to be replaced. Why don't I back into the slip? The boat maneuvers very poorly when backing—I would probably wind up dinging the windvane myself!
