splicing

Lefteris’ boat is almost finished and will be launched in a few days. The sails are still not ready but even without them it is beautiful I think. I was able to give a hand by splicing thimbles to the running tackle and mounting it on the mast. Never managed to learn all the words for the many bits and pieces but it was still a great experience.
