Holy cow this is a lot to figure out all at once. Looks like you need to have things pretty much planned out before you even begin.

So I need to drill holes in the deck around the masts and insert thin brass tubes for the rigging to move through, and let those stick up a bit so water on the deck won't just flood in. Then I install brass screw eyes into the bottom of the hull to direct the rigging to the servo points. Then I install brass screw eyes on the masts to direct the rigging over to the next mast's spars. And at some point in each rigging line I use an adjustable connection point to control any slack that creeps in.

Then I figure out some kind of single bar hinge or hanging hook to secure the spars to the masts.

Looks like a long walk through of Lowes coming up. Anymore advice?
