Mizzenmast, Trailer and Seams

Planing the square mizzenmast blank to an octagon took nearly a full day last Tuesday. Planing it to 16 sides took about 40 minutes; and to 32 sides took about 25 minutes on Thursday. Sanding to round, using 50, 60, 80 and 120 grit, took about an hour on Friday. Cutting the tenon to fit the mast step took most of Friday afternoon.

I re-installed the bunks on the trailer so that is ready for Gardens.

The deck seams have been filled and faired.

With the port side foredeck panel installed (and clamps removed!), Gardens looks more like a complete boat!
