You could always do a few holes and get some bungee cord something like Silentneko did. Don't have to keep it on just use to secure stuff.

Your boat is looking great!

Hey Bogie, it is looking good!

I have a roll of sail cloth bought for my first build. It is still in the tube it came in. I don't remember exactly what it is or even how much I have. But I do know I over think and over buy everything so If you are thinking about making your own let me know.

I enjoy the sailrite videos, but sewing a sail sounds more daunting than sewing a cushion cover and even that seams hard to do well.

Exactly, Once I realized it was going to be sew hard to do, I left the cloth in the tube and bought a sail.

Build on!

The key to learning how to make a sail, is buying an old used sail and fixing it.

A few pics of my progress over the past few days. I'm doing A LOT of sanding. If I had to guess I'd say there's weeks and / or months of sanding ahead. But that's ok because I don't really mind. There's no rush so the plan is to sand until I'm super happy with everything.

I also mounted the two chain plates inside the cabin.

Also painted the seat bottoms. They look great to me. Inching closer to painting the berths and getting the seats glued down.

Everything is looking really good Bogie! It makes it easy for me (non sailor) when you have labels on everything. I hope that I see the chain plates but really don't know what they are or what they do. :doh:

Also I think most people sand until they are tired of sanding....not till they are super happy enough! :lol: :lol:

Haha thanks OQ! The chain plates are those triangular shaped pieces on each side of the cabin. There will be a metal piece bolted to them that passes through the hull to the the outside (sticking out a few inches). Then then stays come down from the mast and hook onto them. Not sure if I really need them because my mast will probabaly be free standing but it can't hurt to strengthen the cabin.
