    Dryfitting the masthead/crane: 2x12mm + 4x12mm ply discs, epoxied (the 4 smaller ones are to be set inside the mast). M8 u-bolts.

    Is this strong enough?

    What to attach to the mast with - epoxy, sikaflex and/or screws to be able to remove it?

    Finally I was able to fetch the bottom part of the mast :)

    Looks great, Jami. Just as good and, I suspect, a lot cheaper than the metal option!

    It's incredibly versatile, that W stuff!

    Can’t afford any - the summer is slipping away!

    The glue is on and the bolts tightened.

    Oh, well - the supplier of the aluminium butt-weld flange has problems with the delivery. I will not wait for X weeks.

    So I'll go back to the full-plywood system and make a collar from 1-2 layers of 30mm ply with 6-8 bolts though the whole partners package. 

    The bottom part of the mast (130x5) should arrive mon-wed along with the battens. 

    The bottom paint job is done, and with a decision of leaving everything not essential to basic sailing for next year, this could theoretically mean a splash day in a week. More realistically in two.

    Be my guest :)

    I thnk there will probably be just epoxy and 2-pot polyurethanr paint on the ply on the deck snd without paint below.

    Hi Jami,

    Sorry to butt in hear but I have a question (I am developing my plan for a conversion over this coming winter). I scanned through this thread for a few pages and didn't find my answer.

    Looking at the photo of the partners (beautiful job by the way) how will you finish off the plywood 'sandwich' above and below? Layers of glass? Epoxy? Paint? combination?

    And the Step?

    Ok, thanks for the assurance, David. So I should be ok for this season anyway, and if I should feel like it after field (sea) tests, I can add something next spring.
