More Deckage.

No sooner had I updated John Z's progress than I received some new photos from Martin Scott over in Cornwall.  I may need to start a pool to see which of these two Mistrals will be launched first...

Fore deck temporarily held in place during initial fitting with duct tape.

Looks good!  Note the neatness of both the boat and the work area.  Martin is building his boat in the utility room of his house, while John Z. builds in his downstairs rec room!  I don't know how they do it!

Martin's boat will have a center main traveler.  John is planning to stick with an aft bridle.

Martin is also designing his own sail.  He indicates that although he'll be measured under the IMCA's current rules, he will build a slightly less powerful sail than is permitted in the interests of controlling the boat in his local conditions.
