I've done a dry fit of the mast sets, makeing sure all is were it should be, some how I got it right, I cut some mohogany blocks 2-1/4" x 2" x 2" and drilled them to fit the 3/4' mast stock bevaled the bottoms so they would fit snug into the hull, cut a 3/8" rabbitt joint into the bottoms to fit over the keel. It should hold quite well, I hope, the masts will be pulling on the keel,and deck on a side run, and they will be pushing into the ribs for a down wind run, I'll need to install some good rigging to hold it all, don't need to be snapping masts of at the deck line.
