Fabrication of our mast repairs has been carried out by Aqua-Tec, based on advice from rigger Greg Gilliam and project managed by Adam Ashby. Here are some photos...
|New mounting plates, deck light and polished lower spreaders|
|Reinforced upper spreader trailing edge|
|New masthead fittings|
|Old waterlocks (metal unit in foreground and blue plastic in background)|
|Old waterlock removed from "coffin-like" compartment|
|New Vetus waterlock (grey plastic) installed|
In short, if we get any more jobs done the to-do list will be looking positively short, which can't be a good thing. Nearly time to go sailing again!
