What does it weigh?

It's supposed to weigh 275 lbs. and I estimate it is close.  I will be borrowing 2 others for the technical assistance of moving it.  I will try to weigh it during the move.

oooh very pretty!


can you describe the stem? looks like an outer and inner stem, is the sampson post/stem part of the stem or is it worked into the breast hook?

Thanks Danny.


Correct on both.  I cut the stem long as it is part of the layout when securing the frame for planking and then I removed the tapered portion of it where it extended above the breast hook near the end of the project and cut it to the final reveal.  Then drilled and inserted some 5/16" bronze rod through it for the cross piece.  The plans called for cutting the stem flush with the shear and installing the breast hook flush with both.


Thanks thull.


edit: Yeah, what Paul said, we answered at the same time.
