From the left:
- Original (circa mid-2012) mast step for the gaff-yawl rig with too large a mortise for the intended birsdsmouth mast
- First iteration of mast step (circa May 2013) for 105sf main balance lug yawl rig with too large a mortise for the intended birdsmouth mast
- Mast step for the 147sf main balance lug yawl rig (circa April 2015) with correct mortise for my mast
- Latest (last?) iteration of the 105sf main balance lug yawl rig - with mortise to be cut
My Mom had an expression that aptly describes how this all happened: What you don't have in your head, you have to have in your feet.
