I have actually finished the boat and I am in the middle of completing my birdsmouth masts. About 80% complete. I look at the plans for installing the deck hardware and I am confused by what goes where (best placement). Also need some information on where to place cleats and or davits and the best method to prevent pulling out under load. Mom want this thing to launch. It has been a bit over two manyears since we started this project ( almost 4 calander years, took one off to go work in northern Maine and epoxy work in Louisiana July through August and early September is a PITA). Wife is getting a tad impatient for me to give her garage back. Does anyone have pictures they can post to give me a better feel for this final step. I plan to order the roach sails but will be attaching the sails to rings cut from heavy wall PVC pipe sections to 3/4 to 1 inch wide and sand down and round the top and bottom edges. I like the clatter they make when adjusting and riding the wind, just an old familiar sound I heard often sailing Puget Sound off of Tacoma Washington in my youth. I may have to change if I cant figure it out but I've got a few ideas how to make it work.
Thanks to all over the years fro sharing and encouraging
