MELONSEED 13'4" - Built by Etienne Muller 2020 - Designed by Selway Fisher

The mast carved out and rough sanded, I managed to get some lovely Sitka Spruce from Robins Timber in the UK. No knots at all, and no fade out in the grain. I am very pleased with what they delivered. It was expensive. This ring bolt goes through the mast about an inch above deck level. It will get a block, or perhaps just have a line through it, running to a cleat on the foredeck forward of the coaming, for tensioning the luff.
