Building ‘Sharpy’ Part 77
Finally, I got around to fixing the mainsheet pipe. The photos illustrate how it was done. I wanted the exit end of the pipe where it will be near the centre of the aft deck to be upright, as shown per the plans. Therefore I contrived a block to retain it in that position and to which I shall attach a deck hook for the end of the mainsheet. This will go through one block attached to the boom, back through the pipe to another block fixed to the rudder bar support, and from there to the right hand of the solo crew.
