I have not yet gotten the video(I like video more than photos. Cushions
are all in. Cockpit
. If you notice in one of the photos, the tabbing is not painted. I had a messed with the tabbing a bit. Boat is looking good. Exterior pain is coming shortly along with sails
and running rigging
. Thinking of going with dyneema
for the standing rigging
. I did my lifelines
and love it. Very easy to do.
Does it stretch. NO. Will you notice it loosens after you do it...yes. Will you intially think it stretched....yes. What I found when doing the lifelines
is that the fibers are not pulled as tight as possible and you do your splices and put it all together. A day or so of sailing and pulling on it and you will notice it is looser than when you started. It will also feel harder to the touch. It did not stretch, but pulled tighter as It does not come "pre tightened/stretched". I would think that most people would assume it stretched as I did, but upon closer inspection
, I noticed it was noticeably harder.
Fun projects, don't even feel like work.
Can't wait to see the difference when I get new sails
on there and see how she sails compared to my current
