Nice to have met you Ray &Steven last week at El Dorado park. The brass for this boat goes well Ray. Keep up the plan you wanted for this boat...she is turning out great so far.
Obviously you got home safely that has to be a grueling drive. I know how dry it is taking the 5 to N. CA when I have to do that.

Looking at your mast step the thought occurred to me, why not use a shell casing from a .45 for the base of the mast? Just thinking out loud. Ideas for future consideration.

I have just finished with the basic rigging, , now to decide as to how to fine tune the outhauls and topping lift the vang did trouble me a bit , now I see how it was to function...... I have not yet decided various colors to use, my brain says use a wine color, to see it clearly I would have to empty the bottle.... clearly.....
