The Pathfinder Design

While Jan worked on the gardens yesterday, I worked on
Cutting the tenon for the crank:
When the rains arrived earlier than predicted, I moved the operation inside. Here it is, set-up and ready for epoxy.
After I glopped on the epoxy, Jan turned the yard while I wrapped it with plastic-wrap and perforated the wrap to allow excess epoxy to ooze out.
The whole, wrapped up yard sat overnight to give the epoxy a chance to cure. I pulled the wrap off this afternoon and things look good. It'll take a small bit of sanding to be ready for varnishing.
Meanwhile, the main mast has received three coats of the 1:1 wiping varnish and is looking better.
