Work continues on the spars: planing, ripping, and notching staves for the mizzen mast, main yard and boom; varnishing and painting the boomkin; and, installing new (more suitably sized) hardware on the mizzen boom. Gluing up the spars is next. The main mast will come later - hopefully after gaining some experience with these smaller spars.
We were out of town for five days. When we returned, most of the snow - but not all - had disappeared. The main barn doors are still snowed shut but I can get into the barn to begin setting up to resume work on Gardens' hull. Maybe, if we go away for another five days, the temperatures will warm a bit more... and work on the hull can continue.
