Glued up the mizzen yesterday (could not sort out my computer yesterday enough to do the update), a lot of glue in a short period of time. Luckily my mother is here and could help me sort things out....

Dry fit

All the pieces in place

Now with glue

The bottom end

Also made a futile attempt of straightening the main mast staves by a primitive steam box, towels ht water and garbage bags

Bottle weights

Tried the spars with the sails, decided to replace the 36mm solid mizzen sprit for a cut of broomstick....

The main

Time today: 2 h
