ONE WEEK TO LAUNCH , SO A QUICK UPDATE
Wednesday Phil re sanded the cockpit and gave it another coat of varnish
Phil then had to make the jaws (don't know their proper names)to hold the sail up the mast. As he had no idea how to do it or what they look like so ,he looked at similar examples on other boats.
The mast foot had to be recut as apparently it would have been unremovable once it had swelled .
