fittings and riggings 02

Stringlines are used to mark out positions for the deck hatch straps and deck rigging. I drill pilot holes, then a use a series of what are called 'gimlets' to bore holes through the hull into the sheer clamps to take a set of brass screws. The holes themselves are lined with epoxy resin to make them watertight.
