Deadeyes into Forward Channels

Channels before sanding down the Notches
After sanding notches out and drilling Holes for the Deadeyes
Just taking a picture of the 1st one… I’m not sure if this is right, but I’m just going to leave it so the Gun Port Door will be able to open.

Headrail

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.

Titebond Translucent Wood Glue

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.

Letting Posts dry

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.

Clamping Rail to middle Column. Also I added the 1×2 Fillers in between the 1×1 Slats on bottom to strengthen the Posts as they stand.
Dograil completed

It’s completed except for the Holes for the Belaying Pins.
