The first coat to seal Friendship Sloop Momentum’s new mast went on today, with Spirit supervising.
Harold sanding the black locust table for the mast. He flattened the bottom, sloped the top to shed rain, and cut it out on BMC’s ShopBot CNC.
This may not raise an eyebrow on the coast, but at the car wash on 10th and Parade in Erie, cleaning mast hoops is unusual!
Nick made the mast base out of black locust and keyed it into the Douglas fir, and then fastened it with epoxy.
