Hi Mike,
Thanks for the thanks and for the computer advice, hopefully Rob will open the file as it was written on Word so I don't know what was wrong.
I had a first sail with the booms back on and swinging seperatley to the mast. Thesail shape is much nicer and the mast can sit somewhere about 30- 40 deg off the angle of the boom. I think I could feel it more powerful.
I also painted the rudders and found the smooth paint made a differnce to turning and a smoother less turbulant flow.

  Doug:  Thanks for posting such a complete description.  It's great to read about the details from a standpoint of someone who doesn't do the strip-plank construction on a regular basis.

I think this is Rob's private email address. Or Mark's. Anyhow here is some buiding guidance that Rob was wanting, giving some time estimates and stages for amatuers. I Couldn't help from trying to advise about potential problems and better ways to do things.
Feel free to edit or use any info, or make it available as is on the web site.
