Week 13

I am working on the new anchoring spareman we call it.This is to hold the anchor chain out from the stemm a bit-it will be 150 by 100 (6 by4in) and will have a dumb sheave ie a groove in the wood. I had this on AVA and it worked well also in conjunction with a cathead to haul the anchor up to.Anchor planned is a 55 kg ROCNAR-designed and built here in NZ.Chain 12mm(half in) 100m.I managedto score a perfect fit second hand gypsy which will be hydraulic Also adding to the stemhead which at sometime had been cut down and I want to add a pair of 'topgallant rails.Marcus is doing the very difficult ribs up forward in the chain locker-not much room! We also moved the lunch room onto the aft deck.

More to come.....
