    Incidentally, just in case you have not checked this out already, my pal, Pete Langley, who owns the Port Townsend foundry makes some beautiful bronze blocks that match those that those rusty stainless cheek blocks are trying to emulate!

    Looking good, wowswitch! I was at KKMI yesterday helping a friend move his boat there. Took a quick look for Wiletie on my way out, but didn't see her. Hope to see her out on the bay soon.

    Jay, your friend's foundry page is awesome.

    I took the life lines off to make the rigging easier and i sure like the way it looks! the ones i have are 30" tall one line, im thinking 24" tall two lines would look better... but none looks the best. what do you think?

    I think it depends on how you use the boat. Offshore? Kids? Happier in a harness with a tether? Do you sail with large groups of friends?

    Boats always look best without them, but there's more to surviving than looks. I think it depends on your situation and the boat. How are the headsails handled? I did see a furler.

    Well, that is lovely...
    The spars,
    The coins,
    Your Mom, and
    The gesture to tradition.

    She is really looking more than 'respectable' now. Very nice!
    Nothing like a proper schooner.

    Clever. You usually have to buffer them off the deck at the ends so they don't hook up on the wrong side in a gybe too, so thats really nice design and implementation.

    Great job! Interesting placement of the winch under the boom of the main.

    Do you have a photo of the main boom goosneck fitting? I'm going to cast a new one for my boat, and I like your design.

    Thanks! How do you secure the reef point at the tack?

    i've been wondering that too, 'cause my gaff rig doesn't have much either..
    looking through the books i'm led to believe the traditional way was either to have a loose tackle with an open hook through the cringle to use as downhaul,
    or, on lighter rigs, just a simple pennant to lead through the cringle and make fast to a cleat
