Test fitting, I decided it would be easier to cut through the small wales rather than
trying to cut and trim the support,

434.jpg
just a little more trimming to do,

and the port side,

different angle,

and a couple of views of the support, it still has to be trimmed to its final shape,

The support held in place with a couple of dowels, while working out the shape of the lower rail piece,

cutting the template to shape,

and the finished template where the rail will go,

the first section cut to shape, it still has to be sanded and then steamed to bend down to meet the hawse holes,

The assembly just sitting in place not yet glued, still some fine tuning and sanding to do,

Head on view,

closer look,

and the port side, i might trim a bit more off the fronts of the supports, and i don't think I am going to fit sheaves
in the head, just drill the Six holes to make it look like sheaves,

My Artesania moulding scrapers arrived today, I bought both sets
the 27300 and the 27301, they look quite sturdy but I will make a
support piece to go either side, I will be trying them out this week,
this one is the 27301 set,

The 27300 set,

Wishing you all the best Pat, it will be one of the best things that you can do for yourself, when you give up the smoking, take care of yourself,

Best regards John,
