Sanding isn't everything so I've entertained myself with a mock-up of the main mast. Shown here with the king plank template:
While these photos illustrate the concept I'm working on (the slot to facilitate stepping the mast), there is work to be done to refine and finalize the details of the concept. (Note: This mast position is different than what is shown on the Lug Yawl Plans available through Duckworks.) A plug to fill the slot and hold the mast in place is in the works.
I think this stub mast may have, with some refinements, a future as a mast support when trailering Gardens.
