Time for some work on the masts. For the mainmast I need…
An octagonal thing at the base.
And some cleats.
And the boom rest.
The mast was shaped, stained, and painted red at the bottom. The parts from above were 3D printed in black and glued on. Here is the base of the mast dry-fitted.
I did similar work on the foremast but discovered that the cleats were positioned too low, so that will need a redo.
