[On deck, aft end of cockpit]

On deck, aft end of cockpit. The usual clutter of stuff on the stern pulpit, made somewhat worse due to the relatively narrow width of Sunspot's canoe stern. At the forward end of the pulpit on each side, you can see the U-shaped plastic brackets for the cockpit stereo speakers. At the right side of the picture, hanging from the lifeline, are the control lines for the two furlers. To the left of the backstay, you see a white tube going up out of the picture. This is a small conduit for the antenna wire, leading up to the insulated backstay.
