This morning I stumbled upon the excellent blog https://cartersboat.com/ and thought I would share their Full Hoist article. Greg & Jeanne Carter live in Santa Rosa, California and are the former owners of F27 #217 Origami. Ravenswing is the beautiful result of their considerable efforts. For those considering building or currently involved in a project their blog is great inspiration and education. Enjoy!
Full Hoist Posted on June 29, 2016
7am muster at the boat today to bend on the mainsail and try the first hoist ever on this mast. Wow, is this a fantastic sail! Fits exactly as we planned and it’s so well made.
Here’s the Skateaway Designs headboard with the rebate space for the 2:1 halyard block. I love how this gets more head of the sail up in the clean air.
Ravenswing was dancing on the dock lines, ready to charge as a light breeze filled in. It was bittersweet to lower the sail and get back to a work weekday.
Also got the lazyjacks about 80% done yesterday eve – pics of those once finished next week (under ordered 25′ of line 🙁
The bow got finished up. Happy with the carbon and glass pulpit, color matched to the rig and beams. The grey dyneema nets kind of tie it all together.
Tonight in the shop we finished fab and fairing work of the replacement tiller stub
Now that I have figured out how to share articles from other blogs – please let me know if you have a blog you would like to see published on Trimaran Journal.
