Thanks Tim.

Since I am now realy flying by the seat of my pants. No plans, except a scale sail plan, and scale ruder and breaks, just pictures. I have to constantly check what I am doing on the modell, if it works and looks right and has kinde the right proportions, it is right.
Yesterday I mated the mast with the hull and made the shrouds. Naturally I found out that the rear eyebolts for the shrouds with the spreader were not far enough to the rear. They did not produce any tension on the shroud going to the bow.
That sucked, because I got holes in the deck and plugging them would look crapy.
I decided to leave those eyebolts, were they are, later use, Genua? and just install new ones 50mm to the rear, 2 inches.
I lucked out on the shrouds, did not have to built new ones.
Now the rear shrouds are pulling the mast backwards.
Just a hick up.
When I built the mast it looked kinde fat, but on the boat it looks right.

Next boom and Luemmel
