 About the project


The mast steps have been installed. There is a removable block on the fore side of the step so that the mast heel can swing free of the step when the masts are pivoted down. That block is bolted into position when the masts are up. The steps are positioned so that the foremast has a 2 degree tilt aft and the mainmast a 3 degree tilt. These steps are the first permanently installed pieces that are held by screws in addition to the epoxy glue.
