I've got the stern worked in today, and have started working up the bow where it needs to be.

Oh by the way does any one need to clean out there spring clamp collection, I could use about 10 more, so this could go a little faster, lots of area to glue but not enough clamps.

Haven't you heard? You will never have enough clamps - let alone too many

Hee hee, yep. this is about the time where I start semi-detail planning the next steps on paper... with so many little things to do before the deck goes on, sometimes it is hard to decide what to actually work on to keep the project moving.

"Build cards", index card checklists, basically, help when scratch building!

I tend to take the multipal items first, then move from bow to stern, checking and rechecking all that need to be in stalled, then i place the decking, and check agian, It helps to have a deck plan you can look stright down at, in scale so you don't miss any thing.

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.

Blocks look like they should do the job.

Yes they should do the job, I hope, there will be alot of pressure from all directions, down is the one I fear the most, I built a Boston day sailor about 10 years ago that the mast punched through the bottom, I didn't think about the down pressure that was being apllied to the hull, all I worried about was side pressuer, I think these will give a good foot print on the hull, and the mast sets 1/8" above the keel, so it should work ( fingers crossed )

Are the mast going to be removable? If so you might want to use brass sleeves, the wood will swell and be hard to remove.
