How to Build a Bermuda Sloop (for beginners)

Recommended Posts

Hi Bluenoser,

I have put channels and shrouds on in the bottle. The channels had two locating lugs (small dowels) corresponding to holes in the hull. The shrouds were already attached to the mast. I got them all but one assembled in the bottle. That one is still giving me trouble after several attempts because the backstays on it twisted and spring it round through 180 degrees. I'll get there, but life would have been easier if I had attached control threads to the lugs, through the holes and out the bottom of the hull to pull it into place. Lesson learned for next time.

Thanks Alan

I will try that and see 

Thanks again 

ps.   A tern is what we call a three masted schooner here in the Matitimes 

Many were built including HMCS Venture in the late 1930.  At Meteghan.  

I think.
