Mason Bay

The rebirth and conversion of a New Zealand fishing boat-and maybe her further adventures. Other boats and observations will happen from time to time.....

Now have all the poured sockets for the standing rigging. I have had the 10mm ones on the left for some time and will use on the mizzen. the new 12mm ones on the right for the main mast and forestay. I do not like swaged ends but "norseman' or similar a good second best, and even Talurits are better. The good things about poured sockets apart from their safety are
1/ once made for the boat last the lifetime of the boat
2/can be put on by the owner-and reused by the owner-even at sea!
3/ much cheaper than swages
I will take progress shots for you.....
