It's been an education for me - and I handled all this stuff myself. I scraped the foremast cross-trees to deck and oiled it, replaced a few ratlines, restropped a couple of blocks, and sewed a couple of patches of on the forestays'l - and I can barely remember a thing about the boat 30 years later.

Interestingly, I downloaded the instructions for Model Expo's Pride II and it says in there that Pride has things that aren't exactly modern, and yet aren't "the old way" either - ie: things on Pride are done the 'Pride way.' That's as true of the old boat as it is the new one.

Anyway...

The real clew ring had a smaller ring on it. If I solder one to my ring, it'll soften the brass too much, so I'm going to make another from rod all in one piece and solder the joints. That'll look more like the real one too.
