Boom and Gaffs

I’m starting the building of all the Boom and Gaffs. There are 4 of them to build. I cut out the Patterns and used a 2x7mm Tanganika Board.

First Gaff done
I make the ends by drilling it out and inserting a sanded down Toothpick into it.

I use both my Belt Sander and the Dremel Sander and my small Grinder to shape it.

I just thought That painting the guy friends black looked cool… I’m sure that they must have done it before in history.
