Thanks Bogieman.
The spinnaker chute is being shipped. Now I just have to figure out how it works and what the rigging for it looks like! :help:

Not much energy tonight. But I did get one more section of the seat edge glued up. And I used the shrink wrap that was suggested in the tech thread. It looks like it worked well. I will know tomorrow!

I got the radiused seat edges complete, they came out ok. I found that the stretch wrap was too thin and if epoxy squeezed thru I would have to cut the shrink wrap out. So I tried to put 6 mil plastic down first then stretch wrap the entire piece. The plastic came off much easier but the 6 mil left wrinkles/bulges of epoxy underneath it. I am not sure which way worked better. Probably the shrink wrap and just wipe off the epoxy before you let it set up. The pieces are really straight and seem plenty strong. They get two more layers of glass. 4" Woven tape to cover the gaps and then a layer of woven over the seat tops for wear resistance per the plans.

I still have to install the 2 chain plates and figure out how to rig the retractable spinnaker pole. I have the tube in just haven't found anything that shows how the spi pole rigging works yet. And until I have that figure out I can't put the seat tops on. :help:

Thanks Jeff!
I have been trying to understand the retractable spinnaker pole rigging. Is/are there any plans with perhaps a more detailed drawing or a build thread that shows how it works? From the pic which I will attach it shows a line going thru an in deck fitting to the aft end of the pole tube, where I assume it attachs to the spinnaker pole end. :?: There are 2 bulkheads between the thru deck fitting and the aft end of tube. :?: Albeit heavily fiberglassed overbuilt bulkeads too btw... :D The best pic I have found that shows how one of these is rigged I will attach as well. It has taken me more than several hours to find this pic but I think I am getting closer to understanding it now! Unfortunately with our "bomb cyclone" all the sailboats in my area are under 7+" of snow right now. Thanks in advance for any tips/suggestions!
