Octave Marblehead Prototype: Sheeting Run

The prototype boat has as an RC tray a simple horizontal shelf spanning the hull and capturing the fin trunk.
The mainsheet enters the boat through a fairlead immediately below the boom at the sheeting point.
A simple sheeting circuit goes to a block anchored inside the hull at the transom.
The turning block is offset in order to clear the rudder tube.
Ray has been measuring out and installing the sheeting system.
The hull/deck joiner serves to reinforce the anchor point for the turning block loop.
All in-keeping with the¬†philosophy¬†of the design: keep the deck clean and minimise the fittings/components…
