DeadEye Spacing Tool

I just made this Spacer that you put between your Deadeyes so that they come out at the same distance on the Shrouds above the Deadeye on the Channels.

Anyway, it works out to being 20mm apart… So I gave it 21mm to give it some wiggle room and stretching space…

It’s made out of a Popsicle Stick.

The idea is to slip the pins on the bottom into the Deadeye and slide the one from the Shrouds on to the top one. Then take down the slack on the Shrouds and serve the end.
