The partner and step line up nicely. I had a bit of a surprise when I discovered the mast was a bit thicker further up and would not fit through the partner. A bit of work with the block plane and all was good.

There is a bit of reinforcing yet for the mast but it looks pretty good. I have the brace pieces cut, they just need to be painted and then mounted.

I bored out the holes for the pintle bar. I ran into a bit of an obstacle in that I had not really factored in the bulk of the rudder sandwich when I went with the scaled down gudgeons. I went back to the larger gudgeons and now have clearance for the rudder to pivot.

I think you should name your boat Kermit. It isn’t easy being green. :-)

It looks almost ready Mark. It must be exciting to think that you will soon be out sailing her.

As I was painting the green on Paul that was the song running through my head LOL! I’ve got to come up with a name soon as I am running out of stuff to do on 816!

Mike I sure am looking forward to getting 816 out on the water. This may be the fastest I have ever completed a project!
