Team members Keith Bradley and Joe Uzzo have been busy. Here we show 6 pictures of their progress below.
Photo #1 shows one of the seven deck structures coming together – Joe’s handiwork Photos
#2-6 show Keith’s handiwork Photo
#2 & 3 show the mast step which will be bolted into an internal fiberglass mast step. It is adjustable so we can get the mast aligned fore and aft and side to side to the waterline. RELIANCE had about 2 degree mast rake aft Photos
#4 & 5 show the main chain plates and backstay chain plates. The hull has been cut to receive these plates and they will be screwed and glued in place and then we’ll back-fill with fiberglass material. They cant inward and are differing angles fore and aft.
Photo #6 shows the bobstay chain plate already installed.
Thank you Keith and Joe for all of your hard work!
