Ready for Launch.

Well after many hours setting up the rig, I think the boat is finally ready for the water. I don’t know how many times I have taken the masts in and out of the boat at this stage. I know it was a lot. Checking and fitting all of the blocks and strops so that the halyards and reefing lines would have fair leads.

Now before you eagle eyed observers start complaining I know there are a few things wrong with the rig in this picture. For a start the mizzen boom snotter has slipped and the sail is not set correctly. Also the lashing of the sail to the gaff is probably too tight and the gaff could probably do with a little more peaking. There are more than likely a few more alterations that will need doing once the boat is sailed a few times. More of that in a subsequent post.
