« Part 25: Set back Part 26 of Maybe the beginning of a larger project series Part 27: some progress »

Days when I do stuff like this I move a whole lot more carefully and really plan out any work with sharp spinny bits. Once I remedied the goof I managed to finish my mast step.

A buddy of mine came over after work to check out the progress on 816 and of course we talked about all manner of sailing things. Phil had some really good advice about strengthening my mast/locker bulkhead and not add too much weight. We also had a really good discussion about rigging 816, and I think he helped me understand a bit more about the actual function and forces on the various lines and booms etc.

I’m in Winnipeg tomorrow so not too much more will get done, unless I get back early enough. I need to sand off the paint where the step is going and where I’m going to mount the leeboard. I am still looking for a trailer so can’t yet haul 816 any where just yet any way.

I’m not a table saw user, so I’m having trouble figuring out what exactly I’m seeing there, but… uh… how’d ya manage to… uh…

Never mind.

Glad the mast step is coming together!
