Have rebuilt the jibboom and adjusted all of the forestays. Worked out pretty well! Unfortunately, for some reason I can't seem to post any pictures - I keep getting an error message that eh uploaded file is empty??? Will try from a different computer this weekend and see what happens.

Wayne,

After my evaluation of the backend of the forum settings and server settings, ( I did not find anything that stood out among the crowd of settings.

I then went back and tested an image upload and it worked. However, when I responded to you the first time I could not as well load an image. What ever is going on, it must be outside my realm of influence.

I will keep an eye on it. Just continue ! thanks

Have finished most of the rigging on the main mast - one more backstay to go and then finish off the running rigging.

Took advantage of a great fall day in October to take her for a spin on Passamaquoddy Bay...

Still a bit more to do with running rigging and rat lines, then belaying all these lines. Last step is adding the davits and boats, mounting to her stand and then, I think, will be finished!

Best wishes for a Safe and Successful 2014!

Glad to find this Build Log. I am going to attempt the same kit as my first build. Will try to capture photos of the early progress photos.

Hello Wayne

Very nice repair work coming out of your New Old Ship Yard. Sure do love that picture of her steaming up the bay and the smoke sure does make her very realistic, ENJOY.
