mast head and cap


Recommended Posts

I am building a Harvey by AL, am doing my own thing and I am now up to the masts. I started with the bowsprit, jib boom and the foremast having looked at a reasonable number of references. I think I have the mast head correct but am open to comments please. However, I am a bit puzzled by what to do for the mast cap and the fixing of blocks for the yard and stays. Perhaps I should just add a few eyebolts but I have seen some drawings that show a metal strap around the mast cap with tabs to which the blocks etc are fixed.

 

I have attached a few images of my progress to date and would appreciate any comments. So far cross trees and trestle trees are glued but not the top mast or mast cap.
