Having completed your Viking Dragon ship here is a YouTube video of the construction of a 100 footer a few years ago. There are links to following videos on the launching and naming of the boat as well as another on it's initial Labrador Sea expedition in a severe storm. Note the use of a windlass to raise and lower the boom and sail. I hope that I get this embedded link to work.
When you look at the construction video, there are two more in the right side bar "coming up" for the masting, naming, and launching, followed by one with the ship out in a storm which shows the manner of sail handling and tacking if you watch for those details. Sail On!!!! PT-2Wow, just seeing all the nice comments, (been busy), thank you all!!! And to PT for the video, one I haven't seen.
