so...here are some winter reflections.....of a sort.............lots got done, if not done well!
from this CAD
and the finished thing......a galley box for Arwen
The rudder got some TLC
as did the mast and the mast fixings
Frayed ropes and halyards got rewhipped
A new sleeping platform was made, Danish oiled and varnished
Life jackets and PFD's were checked and cleaned
Square spars were rounded
varnished, painted and had leather bindings put on
and halyard rings were lashed in place
The outboard bracket was repaired and refurbished. Let's ignore the fact that I put it on back to front!!
All that remains is the attaching of eyes and setting up of re-boarding loops; and the installation of two knotted righting lines under each side deck
and some extra strengthening blocks in construction to reinforce where these eye bolts will go
and of course, that ever nagging issue,
the painting of interior and exterior hull!!
Phew. Nearly there!
