Today was fun. Surrounded with coils of rope, boxes of rigging hardware, just like when we used to set up our sailing designs.
Although FPBs are obviously not sailboats, they still have winches, rope clutches, and various types of string between. We are working with Thomas setting up the boom control system.
Some time ago we showed you the wonderful hardware Circa had made up for the boom control struts.
The booms are 23 feet/6.5 meters long, 6”/150mm diameter schedule 40 pipe. And this double traveler car set up with 4 -1 control tackle runs the booms in and out easily.
Lots more to follow tomorrow.
