We just completed building a display base for our three wooden spars- topmast, topsail yard, and topsail club.
This just sort of evolved like any committee action. “What about making a canvas covered base just like the real one?” Ok, let’s add some bare steel, oh and bare aluminum, and oh add flush rivets. Just found a real 15″ cleat. And a deck winch. Add a scale 15″ cleat.” So, here’s what we got – near perfection!!
