    Hello Henrik. Welcome to the Forum.

I would have then tried mast hoops, but never had any (or wanted to drop mast) so made up some with rope and beads. It...

    Having worked on Charm over the winter and Sam Heard refitting the engine and doing some excellent work on the bowsprit to enable us to raise it when on our berth we're booked to go in the water at the end of March.  If anyone has a couple of hours to give us assurance that we've got our...
