Rig production is going on!

As promised in our last post we managed to the sail this week!

As sailcloth we got a strong PE sheet (also known as polytarp). That’s exactly the sort of stuff the people in Micronesia using for there sails.

Exceptionally we bought it new but spend only 40 bucks.

Nice place for lofting! Thanks to STS, our sailing club, for their gym!
Laying out everything to get the shape.
Cutting the cloth
Sewing. We used a very cheap DIY sewing machine, nothing special for sails. It worked well but but professional machines would give a better result.
More cutting . . .
More sewing . . .
Finished !

We hope to setup the sail for test purpose during the next days. Read more in our next weekly update!
