The title is kind of misleading. Anyway, below are the picture of my sailboat. The name is Bandit, M class, 50/800. I built this boat from the scratch. if you are professional sailboat builder, you know this boat is built by someone who knows nothing about sailboat.
I spent two years building this boat at my high school wood-shop during my Junior and Senior years. after high school, the boat just being sitting in the closet. Now, I am a Senior almost done with college. I want to finish this before my graduation.
The boat is planked with 1/8" cherry, the deck is made from mahogany. as you can see the boat is about 70% done, except for the rigging part. I am also going to refinish the hull.
As you can see I built the boat from a blueprint. Now I am stuck with what to do next.
Do you guys know where I can get a good rigging plan for the marblehead class sailboat? I flip through the amya website, and still hadn’t find it.
I find a rigging plan at gbmy.com, but they one sell it with the fitting combo, I don’t want to buy it because I already have most of the fitting.
would you guys recommend a sail winch for this boat, cheapest one possible, so I am extremely tight with my budget. or if you have a used one laying around, please sell it to me.
In regard to sails, should I make it myself? or should I buy one already made? I saw on ebay a sail making kit, sound goods.
by the way, the white stuff you see on the boat, it’s dust.
any help is appreciated.
