As I work away on refinements to the sailing rig for my skin-on-frame outrigger sailing canoe AL DEMANY CHIMAN, I wanted to show off a few more details of the rig as it is. I posted a variant of this view before, but I think this is a better picture. It gives a sense of the overall layout and the different rig elements.
Here is the steer oar and its chalk. This set-up worked reasonably well, though I might eventually want to put some weight on blade end.
This view shows the hiking plank and mainsheet leads.
Finally, some detail on the finished blocks, which I hand made from paduak.
I can’t wait to get her going again next season.
