Have worked on the lateral stays . And their scratch built dead eyes. The lower deadeyes are built onto clevises that are pinned into the chain plates with brass pins . With a hole drilled into the end . Soft copper wire. Run through the hole. And wrapped around the end of the pin, acts like a cotter pin, retains the pin and the Clevis.
This makes the shrouds and dead eyes removable, to make it relatively easy to remove the mast. That will be nessary, as with the mast and bowsprit removed , this will fit in a vehicle. I'ts going to have to make a trip back to Tennessee, and will likely live there , unless I happen open some R/C sailors with a suitable lake in Houston.
Even then traveling with two dogs, a cat , a travel fridge , food that will meet my wife's dietary restrictions , plus medicines and clothing gets cramped quickly.
In Texas, it's cradle/ stand is on an IKEA nissafor ( a handy wheeled cart . It doesn't have a decorative stand . It's too fat to go on the mantle, and too big to fit anywhere in the cabin , so it will live in the
Garage , or the hoped for separate tool room/ workshop/ boat storage , ( canoes and Kayacks) model railroad room . And crew lounge .
Here are the lateral stays . With thier scratch built, and somewhat irregular dead eyes , And the first bit of magogany railing.
I love natural wood, but this Hull has at least four different types of wood , so natural , or stain was out of the question. So paint was a natural choice.
This is the servos in the hole under the removable deck house. The ruder servo, and the sail winch are all there is . The battery and the receiver plug in to these. Later , I will build in a hidden on off switch . The plans show a smoke jack on The deck house roof . It might be fun to Put a smoke generator in the deck house, wire it up with running lights , and run it off the on off landing gear switch , but I'll want to get it sailing before I go for frills.
