You are quite welcome.
Did I address you with the wrong name? If so, my apologies.

Brian

Well folks, I get to see Brian's build now and again. and the standard is more than average. A photo will always show those little imperfections and I can assure you folks they are minor and I have not spotted one yet.

It is a very nice build

Cheers

Hi Brian

Those IC Test Clip - EZ Hook" look to work really well to hold the line to the sails

Have you dyed the sails yet and with what

Cheers

Hi Zoly, Geoff,
no I haven't dyed the sails yet. I thought I would finish all the stitching first, then see how I go with the soaking in black coffee experiment.
