Mast extensions for stangely brown and dangerous strawberry (she gets BSs old mast)

Mast machine appears to work VERY well for wet layup. The thin 90s exert a fair consolidation preasure as they wind on.


This 1.8m section took 3 hours from start to running away to see a client. Less than Radio4s Today programme streamed. This way i might be able to layup a whole mast in one (very long) day.

As good as that is to see…. The better view is out of the windows on the other side of the building!

We usually have a winter mods post, unfortunately I had been o busy with mine I hadn’t started a thread or posted any pictures.

Over the Christmas break I decided to start building a new stock for poppy, one with a more angled tiller tube so it would clear the gunwales an not scrape across the floor when on ‘full off’ mode.
 It’s going well and nearly done. Just waiting on a new spray gun to arrive and things will get shiny.

In the meantime I have also started a new gantry. But of an emergency job as the current one is rather noisy when at speed and not doing much for my confidence.

Has anyone else put boat time over their family at Christmas/new year?

Dangerous strawberry features in the 1992 nationals results:

It says on the Y&Y forum, Cherub 2638 - "Utter Madness" was built in 1989.

Thank you Dave and Jamie, that’s good to know. 
Jimmy mentioned having an adjustable section spliced into the lines…I’ve bought a splicing kit and I’m learning the basics, but what is the splice needed for the adjustable section in the trap line? Any videos or previous posts on this?

I had 1.5mm for a bit, but they snapped so now running 3mm minimum.
