Bridle and Sprit

Today we finished the bridle which is part of the tackle used for raising and adjusting the sprit on the main sail. Now that we are done wrapping (worming, serving and parceling) the line, we can use pine tar so we can seal it.

Justin and John planed the mast to change the width on one side from four and a half to three and a half inches. Colby Dauphin planed the sprit.

We are now getting ready for a week’s vacation.
