Fitting the free-standing mast

I’ve started fitting the mast to the hull. First off the heel fitting.

Hmm the pivot pin wants to cut through the back of the mast

I need to think about the pivot pin – it certainly can’t run through the back of the mast! I probably need to make another hole for the pivot somewhere else in the tabernacle.

I measured where the mast rack hole should be with the mast in position – setting the mast at the right angle – so the next step is to drill the hole.
