  1. slow progress Trying out flaking the mainsail. This is just a test of scrap material. I've reduced the height of the sail by a third, otherwise you get toooo much bulk Flaked with the aid of the brass rod, water and PVA glue Mizzen sail drawn out Glued on 1mm wide strips to represent seams Trimmed. Wire inserted when turning the hem to be able to get some shape into the sail and a light spray Bolt ropes and eyes next Thanks for your kind comments and likes Stay safe Ke

  9. Been working on the mast cheeks which support the shrouds and of course I couldn't resist jury rigging the mizzen As you can see the jewelry fitted to boom and outrigger Experiment with shroud lashing. Left cord, right thread. Think I'm going with the thread. Thank you all for the comments and likes Stay safe Kev
