Rigging, pt. 3


Autumn is approaching and so is the deadline of our occupation of the building space we have been stationed in for 3 years. So there is now an outside pressure to getting the boat to water soon. I finished constructing the boom gooseneck. To my surprise, I could pull 4,8 mm stainless rivets by hand with my Stanley rivet gun, albeit palms received pain. Roughly 2/5 of the boat has been painted with an oil based enamel, white, called Pentaprim. Stinks well and a respirator is needed. I used a larger 10 cmm wide brush to apply the paint. Leaves a good cover. I wont go for a second layer. Right, the sails are in the making and after painting the inside, rest of the rigging can be fastened. Also, the companionway is finished.

    have been following your progress for a couple of years now and have even bought fafnir plans. As luck would have it I found a completed fafnir close to my 25 foot boat and have negotiated to exchange boats. Send your email and I will send copies of my new boat. you are welcome to put the photos on your website.
