Step 5: Connecting the Mast to the Hull
Now you need to drill some holes into the hull. I use very small drill bits, only slightly larger than a needle. I keep the drill stationary and I move the hull into the drill. Small sheets of scrap wood bring the hull up to the height of the drill bit.
There are five holes behind the location for each mast. The shroud lines will go into these holes.
The wire hinge on the bottom of the mast goes into two holes on the hull. It is twisted underneath, and the excess is trimmed away.
One long piece of thread goes through the five holes in the hull and through the mast forming the shrouds.
