Gaff and Boom Part 1

Before starting the mast I had laminated the Oregon for the boom and gaff.  Below is the gaff being laminated from 60mm x 30mm Oregon with a little shaping, 3300mm long plus jaws.  The boom is 4250mm long plus the jaws, two laminations of 90mm x 32mm Oregon cut to shape.

I drew and cut the boom jaws from spotted gum.

Then drilled the boom to suit.  Below is dry fit only, to be bolted with 3 9mm bolts and some leather on the jaws after that.  The gaff jaws are still to come.
