I’m starting the Mainmast. I have no idea how I did it, but I ended up losing a part that connects the top mast to the lower mast. Very annoying. I spent a better part of about an hour making a whole new one. No doubt I will find it after the Mast is all together. I doesn’t look too bad. As a matter of fact, it looks better than the piece that came with the kit.
After the Foremast, I had to take a break for a couple of days. Tying all those Blocks to the Mast is very minuscule and tedious. I have a lot of rigging to look forward to.
The Knot that I used to secure the Block lines to the Mast was to take a string and tie a Rolling-Hitch Knot. Then I used a Taut-line Hitch to tie the string to the Block.
