I used the mast set as in the 3RD pic for the mount, I just didn't carve out the wood to look like those. I'll be useing the cross brassing in pic #2.

MillTime:

The masts will not be removable, they are short enough to fit in my van for transport.

Aerominded:

Practice makes it easy to move right along on a project, getting the time to do it is another matter.

though I would do an update, I get to working on her and forget to take pic's to shear, (sorry about that), I reused an old craddle from another boat for a temp. stand, will do better on the next one, at least make it to fit the hull, I got the servos mounted, will dig into thouse later for the setup, removed some of the cross bars so I can set up the sterring servo,witch I still need to buy, need to set the last top rail at the stearn I need to make forty turn post to stand the top rail on.
Will try to update more offten.

Thank you

Brooks:
Last night after posting to my thread I started looking through some of the dark holes around my shop and found 5 packages of turned posts I bought in the 70's, and 4 of them are just what I needed. And thank you for the links I know I wil need them latter for other things I may not have stuffed in a box some where.

Thank you guy's, and yes I do, BuT there is a point when one might have toooo many hidding spots, I think the wife is getting wize to my tacticks, buy it, hide it, forget it, find it,

The wife asked me to day if I was going to fiber glass the Wawona or just sand a finnish her out, this wile I was about to set the masts permanetly, I stop and said I am going to fiber glass it, she ask" and how are you going to balance the boat on the mast to do that" Sooo I stoped what I was about to do and got some cloth on it to night, I'll glass her out in the tomorrow,

No I am going to lock them in place, they will fit in my van with out a problem, or in my pick up, when I run at the lake next to my home, (to far to carry it one and a half blocks) mostly because there is so much rigging it would be a pane to set it up and brake it down each time.
