Making sprits longer


Recommended Posts

When I built my Lapwing the plans called for a notch in the mast end of the sprits. As I understand it, in the early days, the snotter ran through a notch instead of a cheek block. So when I finally learned the updated version, I had to cut and inch plus off the end to lose the notch.  Well, it matters. It is just too hard to get the sail as flat as I would like in a good wind.
