Excellent work, Connor. Thanks for the super photos. Must feel good to get that one knocked out!

Enjoy exploring the islands (I'm more than a little jealous!)

Good job, Connor.

Yet another way for sufficient support of the mizzen.

As attention demanding as the Mariners are, when it comes to upkeep due to wooden structures, the easier it becomes to facilitate "fixes" to certain issues that might pop up.
All you need is a few tools and time to think.
When I had to do this, I anchored two long (2x10's ???) beam to beam one at the aft end of the cabin and one at the forward end of the cockpit well, bonding them with other crossmembers by huge bolts. Overkill yes but you could support the mainmast on those puppies :-)

Just noticed you bought "Salvia".

Sent some info my way to update your page.

Fair winds,
Bill Kranidis
