She has working halliards, braces, sheets, reef tackle, helm, hatch, and centerboard.  He used cedar, pine, and mahogany on the hull, using lead, bronze, and copper for the metal works. The twelve sails are made from cotton, hemp, and linen. ROBERT AND REBECCA is seen here travelling off by Gott’s Island at 2.3 kts. Find out more on his website, www.flamingfish.net.
