Agreed, very cool. Those are the kinds of small details that keep the fun in it!
There are only two seasons in Vermont: boating season, and boat-building season.

Finished a couple more hardware bits:

Image

Halyard Fairlead.

The fairlead is only about 1.5 inches high. It'll sit near the base of the mast and turns the halyard (rope that hoists the sail up) 90º so it can run horizontally to the cleat on the deck. Cleats are available in bronze so I'm just buying one of those.

Image

Rudder Gudgeon.

A bracket that'll hold a Sunfish rudder onto the transom. It turned out my anvil was the same width as the bracket needed to be long, so bending it to shape was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

It is indeed going to be a work of art! Can't wait for the splash!

Am I the only one that is both excited and depressed when chenier posts updates?
