Today I’ve been working on the Boom Jaws for the Spanker Boom.
The one that came with the kit didn’t look as authentic as the real ones so I made some out of some Walnut Stock I had.
I use DAP Weldwood Cement and Super glue to attach it…
I needed to get the Boom and Gaff of the Spanker done so that I’m not forced to do this later on in tight quarters
I used a 4mm Dowel and I used my Lathe to sand it down to 2mm… Plus a 5mm Tip on the end.
That’s where a bunch of Running tackle will be tied.
