Rigging, pt. 4


I have now three times re-tied the blue plastic sheet covering our boat. That is a dry-land warning that all that can come loose – will come loose. Other than that – the sails seem to finally be in the making. Also, as the title of the post says, santa came late and brought some stuff:


The blocks are by an Italian company called “Osculati” for 10 mm rope, turnbuckles are 8 mm (with interesting and much needed swivel ends for fitting to our chainplates), 125 mm cleats and a large cleat/bollard for the anchor and mooring.

There will be more! A crucial part of the hardware is dependent on sail design, which is still “floating”, as the electrical engineer would say. It will be grounded.
