Housekeeping

I made the mast peg leg some time ago.  Just now getting around to putting the mast pin in it.  It's a 3/8 inch SS lag bolt 4 inches long.  I screwed it in so about 1 inch was showing then I cut the head off.  Not an easy job with a manual hack saw.   I also put in the hiking strap.  I put it in the traditional way athwart ship.  That's the way it was done back in the day.   We'll see if that works.  If not I'll put it in fore/aft as are all the other boats now days.
I also added the traveler and finished up rigging the boom.  Boom just needs some varnish.
