Title: Maggie M help
Post by: AlanP on July 27, 2015, 08:13:09 PM
I have restarted the Maggie M after it has spent three years sat on the shelf. I am struggling a bit to get my head around how the boom deck uprights are fitted either side of the main mast (part number B301 page 15) it would be of great help if someone that is much brighter than me and has fitted these could take a photo of there's and post it for me.  :-))

Regards Alan

Hi Alan

Is it the "new" Maggie M. kit released in 2009 that you have? if so, the two B301 and B320 are assembled as per Fig. 32 on page 33. These two fittings are to take the ropes and blocks which swing the main boom. Drill holes into deck to take B301 - refer to plan view and "Main Boom Rigging" diagram on  plan Sheet 2.

If you have the older version of the Maggie M. then email me at: info@modelslipway.com

Hope this helps.
Jackie

Thanks Jackie, didn't think I had had it that long, but I guess its the old one as I have no page 33, fig. 32 or main boom rigging diagram. I will email you, thanks
