Spanker / Gaff and Boom

I’ve finished sewing the Spanker on to the Gaff. I still need to include some long pieces of line but I’m holding off on that until I finish messing around with measuring out the exact distance the Pins need to be that the Gaff and Boom hook on to. That’s one thing about Artesania Latina is that they don’t give very good instructions and if you’re not careful, you can really mess yourself up. I’m not sure what kind of knot I used for the loops around the Gaff. I went up and over and then down through the string and then back through, on to the next hole.

I’m not working on the Boom. I ended up breaking the end off while trying to put an Eye Pin into it so I’m waiting for the Superglue to dry before continuing.
