Mast spreader balls

I made these wooden balls to stop the jib snagging on the spreders.

  1. Great blog, thank you for sharing.

    I have a 1960 Nordic folk boat also wood and clinker built.

    I sailed her a little too hard in a blow in the San Pablo Bay CA, recently, and.....

    the spreaders have parted from the mast (I think they were the originals) and I need to replace them.

    Did you make yours yourself, and if so, could you please let me have the dimensions . They look first class and will certainly last a long time. I love the wooden balls, that was a great idea.

    When I lived in the UK, I had a very old East Coast One design and sailed around the River Blackwater Estuary (Essex) with the kids. Had a great time, and a few adventures. !!

    best wishes
