FKarl Posted November 8, 2013 Share #1 Posted November 8, 2013 Having read several build logs and gotten way more ideas than this rookie can ever hope to achieve on my first build of this size I have decided to try and do the very best I can with the actual kit as it is and with the instructions provided. Has anyone attempted this? Do the eyebolts and dead eyes really present such a structural problem as to be completely unuseable? I started this two years ago and did a not so hot job painting and glueing the two hull halves together So I am working to clean that up as much as I can. I have started a build log on paper and will be transferring it to the forum as time permits. I am keeping track of time spent and pretty good notes as to what I am experimenting with to solve problems such as mold lines and weak parts..... Currently working on the long guns first. (seems everyone starts there). ANy input as to weakness of parts where it comes to rigging would be appreciated. If I absolutely must substitute eyebolts and dead eyes etc. then I will but I rather think it might be interesting to hear if others have tried to use them and failed or just looked at the parts and, Based on more experience than this rookie builder, decided they were inadequate. Thanks for all the advice and interest in the following months, (years?), as I embark on this task. Karl popeye the sailor 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
