Mizzen Boom Revisited

Not quite done… The pad-eyes installed on the boom are too large and there aren't enough of them…

Using the Rigging page from Joel's Navigator Site, I've redone my hardware list and will be ordering new bits and pieces.

Since the correct pad-eyes are smaller, the fasteners will have to be redone. True, only one hole per each oversized pad-eye will have to be refilled. But new holes will need drilling/filling/redrilling - and then repainting…

I need to remember that nothing is ever really "done" on a wooden boat project.
