We’re at the point where we’re ready to rig up the boat prior to launch.

Here you can see the mast stepped and held with its new shrouds, tensioned by traditional lanyards. Not so traditional in our case as the lanyards are Spectra aramid¬†line instead of traditional hemp. We’ve raised the jib from the mast to the bowsprit.
