New Jib

A nice pre-Spring day and I got the boat out of the barn to fit the jib I just finished sewing.  The jib is made from a piece of scrap from an old sail.  The halyard goes thru a bee hole at the top of the mast.  The luff of the sail is roped, with eyes spliced at the head and tack.  The clue also has an eye sewn into it.
This is also the new, taller, mast.  Today I made the pad eyes that I will use for sheet leads for the jib.  FUN!
