Hi All, i know i'm doing this back to front, but decided to build a yacht, just over 40 inches long, i have no plans and no idea what i'm doing, but i have so far made the hull, i sawed up some scrap wood for planking and have it resined so the wood shows through, will glass the inside, i'm about to construct a cantilever keel, should be fun, have aluminium mast and boom, think that's what its called, what i want are recommendations as to where to buy things like goose necks and all the other paraphernalia mail order if possible in the UK. thanks Phil
