Preparing the Rails for gluing. First I cut out these notches up forward so that the Beakheads will fit into them.
Getting ready to make the Columns which will hold the Pinrails across the forward part of the Forecastle.
The Mamoli Instructions don’t give any measurements for it so I’m going with 10mm with these 2mm x 3mm Stock.
I was having problems with this 2×4 Stock kept splitting on me.
I decided to try this Wood Glue on the outside of the wood to try and prevent this.
I used SuperGlue for this work.
I have to let it get nice and dry because the rail which the Pinrails go into bends down a bit so I’ll have to Clamp on the middle rail.
It’s completed except for the Holes for the Belaying Pins.
