    Hi,


    Great build blog for Mascotte, and a fabulous end product!

    Harking way back if I can, to the sail control for Mascotte. I am about to embark on a build of Cariad (or at least a pilot cutter similar to Cariad ). I'm trying to figure out the sail control for the two foresails. The front one overlaps the second, how did you get one to move over the other when tacking? A fellow club member has successfully built a spinnaker control for an IOM which has some of the features needed - treating the front sail as a spinnaker. But i'm open to any ideas.

    Thanks Ron appreciate thatπŸ‘
    Looks like it'll be a while before I get that far but I'm sure I'll be coming back to you.
    Not the least because I am converting a (badly builtπŸ€”) static model to RC and have an ambition to make the sails work as well. I know, NUTS!😁
    But then, aren't we all just a little πŸ˜‰ Cheers, Doug 😎

    Brillo πŸ‘ Hat off Sir πŸ˜‰
    May be asking your help some time about re-rigging the mess of a fish cutter I inherited. Just took her apart and started renovating the hull.
    Wotta mess πŸ€”πŸ˜² More filler than wood and stern made from a cardboard tape reel 😑 Last pic is roughly what she should look like!

    Have got the main sail finally fitted after some minor length adjustment on some of the rigging
    Pic 1 shows the hand made curtain rings made using 1mm brass rod.
    Pic 2 shows mid way through threading the rope along the boom.

    I find that when the boat is nearing completion I don't always contemplate that there is something I haven't thought through.Just want to get the boat finished and on the water.
    You're doing a fabulous job on this boat.Waiting to see it on the water.I have been following the construction.Excellant workmanship.

    Today i have made a start fitting the sails starting with the jib and stay sail just have the sail control wire to fix to them.
    it has taken most of today just to fit these two as some changes had to be made to some of the rigging lines i had already done but this is my fault trying to get to far ahead of myself rather than being patient.

    You could have only made one oar as pilots always sculled one oar on the transom. I hope you are satisfied with your model, should be.
