PROGRESS HAS SLOWED DUE TO HOLDUPS AND COVID.
The three students from Llandrillo College ,Aled, Mike and Leo have continued coming to help on a regular basis.
The jib was hoisted and fits beautifully !
Further work on the gaff and mainsail were halted as Phil could not find suitable leather to line the gaff jaws
The brass tacks finally arrived last week just as Phil caught the dreaded Covid. Job stopped again !
Work on the boom holding the mainsail is still on hold as we continue to wait for one of the YWAM team to make the "goose neck" which allows the boom to swing and rise against the mast.
Once this is, made the sails can be fully fitted and sailing time approaches !
Whilst off with the Covid ,Phil has spent time making parrel beads from scratch. These go round the mast to help the sail rise up the mast unhindered.
