Hi Everyone

I'm currently working on Issue 119 ( dressing the Spars )...and I have a couple of query's.

The Lateen sail spar V14 on the large plan from Issue 113 shows 8 lift ropes at 6mm equal spacing. The installation Issue 130 shows only 4 lift ropes at 8mm spacing. Which instruction is correct?Confused

Also the large plan shows spar V14 with a loop in the centre and I can't work out the purpose of it. Advice would be most appreciated...BigGrin

Regards

Hi John,

Had a look at this one. Regarding the lift ropes, you should continue with what it says within the instructions for issue 130 and the Official build diary, not the mast plan. 4 lift ropes, 8mm spacing.

As for the loop on the spar, I think the loop is there purely for visual purposes only. Just use the 1m long line as outlined in the instructions.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Alan

Hi Mark

Thanks for looking in and the nice comment...BigGrin
Getting into the hard part now - the dreaded rigging - and had a few mishaps already as I have to figure out how to do things. So a lot of trial and error going on!....Laugh

Hi John, she just looks better and better.... Rigging does get a little tricky in places and needs some care. Judging by the looks of your build I'd say you're getting through it all beautifully.... Very well done.....Love Love
