Linda's St Canute
« on: April 27, 2013, 04:43:57 PM »

Hi guys

As suggested here are some pictures of my tug build so far.

http://sdrv.ms/124aFaU I can't do more to the hull till I find out if I can release the rigging to enable me to take the mast off for transport. If anyone can help with this problem please do, there must be a way. Went to Southchurch Park last Sunday and saw very some nice boats sailing there, made me really keen to get on with mine.

Cheers everyone take care out there

Hi,

Looking good, keep the pics coming.

As for the rigging, one option is to fashion little hook and eye fittings so you can easily release the rigging lines. With a bit of cunning, these can then be disguised by hiding them behind the proper fittings which are there for visual rather than functional reasons.

Hope this helps
