 Once the standing rigging was made up and secured we were able to rig up the boom and gaff. I've never had a gaff rig before which made it all the more interesting. The reason for a gaff rig is to ensure that all the spars are within the boat length when we morph Oddity into a canal boat. It was nice to be able stand back and change the gaff angle until it pleased the eye. Once we went firm it was time to measure up for the sails. The mainsail goes into production today and it looks like we shall have everything from sails to dodger, bimini and cushions ready for hitting the water end of April. I'm so glad that we bought the cloth well ahead of the game to avoid supply issues.
