BigGrin Thanks Kev for the nice comments Cool

Started to fit the mainsail . Sewed the sail to the yard then fitted the mast truck to the main mast and yard Cool

Rigging the halyards for the mainyard is a real fiddle but got there in the end Cool

Next job the lifts of the mainyards not to much of a fiddle this time ThumpUp

This is the fun bit the sheets to the yard nice easy job BigGrin

A bit more to follow soon the topgallant sail ThumpUp

Thanks for looking and happy building rgd Martyn
