exwafoo Posted April 13, 2020 Report Share Posted April 13, 2020 Didn't mean to frighten you. This was on the Black Pearl I did, there's a build log on the forum. The hull was split, and the quarterdeck was separate. The chain-wales were cut from brass shim to give them enough strength with two locating lugs. The port backstays on the mizzen have developed a twist so that it is proving difficult to untwist then locate it in place. I go back to it every few weeks, the trouble is the more I play, the better chance of breaking something else. I have considered just gluing it to the side of the hull, and dab of black paint would hide it, especially as its on the off side. But stubbornness gets in the way. If I ever did this method again I'd have control lines from the lugs through the hull to pull it into place. The others all went in without a hitch tho. Keep at it, its a nice looking SIB.
