Hope the rest of you were groovin’ Saturday night (Allie!). We started the gooseneck (part that connects the boom to the mast).
The wood block is standing in for a big aluminum toggle that will bolt in to the boom end, and hinge here on the long bolt shown.
The afternoon was spent laying a glass layer all along the mast track base. 51′ of tedious handwork, squeezing out every bubble.
The morning was fun though, translating the 2-D spreader plan to cutting out the real thing. They needed a little fill love on the leading edge before taping those edges closed tomorrow.
And here’s one more shot of Will’s beautiful work building the masthead crane / sheave box last night.
…plowing ahead here.
PS – Canada Bill, thx for the encouraging voicemail. Yes, see you on the boat in Mexico soon. Banderas Bay Regatta 2019, baby!
