One thought on “Installing the Main Chainplates (Ep.114)

  1. Well done! Itโ€™s looking great.
    When you do the chain plates for the Mizzenmast you could put a bar clamp or two across the frames and use a wood wedge to hold the backer blocks hard against the hull while you drill the holes. If you donโ€™t have a short bar clamp you could screw a couple temp 2×4 blocks across the frames and wedge against those.
    Keep up the great work! The finish line is near and in no time youโ€™ll be setting sail for the Sea of Cortez! I hope one day I have the courage to tackle a boat of my own.
