Busy, busy, having fun.
I am back on track with this and am determined to raise the mast in the spring A-La my new tabernacle. I will keep posts on this thread. My boat is stored in a yard that shares space with Nautilus Marine a marine metal fabricator. Those guys are keen to see it come to pass and have offered to come over and hand carry my mast to their shop door to weld on the cheeks and the compression tube. I have the full size models made of both the mast's base and the tabernacle. Ha! This year the boom truck was $175.00 each way. Enough! This will be my first winter staying in Maine all winter in decades and I am looking forward to getting a few things done. This is one of them.
