    Not sure that elastic thread is any good for the deadeyes. The purpose of the deadeye set up is to tension the shroud, it doesn't want to stretch.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Most of us use rudder extensions, but separate rudders is a perfectly good idea. You seem to be doing well and making an excellent job of this.

    The rigging looks great, as an uninitiated I assume it is correct!
    I'm sure your painting is better than his anyway๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi Jacko,
    Very clever.
    It is surprising how the simplest of ideas work the best.

    You should have met my Granny Mike,
    She always said "I like a good jig about" when lively music came on the radio๐Ÿ˜
    Especially after an egg flip or two ๐Ÿ˜‹

    I agree, get your other projects finished, then if you need any help, just shout. Looking at the photos, I didn't realise so much had been done, still think you could plank the decks though. I'm sure we can sort out a sail plan for you.

    Cheers, Nerys

    I make it a rule to always finish one project before starting another. I am rubbish at rules. I have four on the go at the moment.๐Ÿ˜

    I don't often have more than one on the go at a time, I just line them up in readiness. there are five in waiting at the moment, and that doesn't include the one I hope to finish this week.

    I've tried that Nerys,
    Then you suddenly get a flash (or flush?๐Ÿ˜ฎ) of inspiration ๐Ÿ’ก and tootle off to do it on number 2 or 5, and then go back to the 'main' event, number zero - maybe๐Ÿ™„
    If that doesn't happen to you Nerys I can only admire your discipline๐Ÿ‘
