Note for the mast, I only put a small piece of rope to hold it against the fwd deck plate, instead of the steel plate propose on the drawing. I did so, because I have no steel plate and I tried with some aluminum, but it breaks when I bend it at 90°. My little cheap rope will do it fine. For the dagerboard, I made it simple as well...
