I also bought a carbon fiber eyestrap from CLC. This item is a dissapointment. It looked much bigger in the pictures online. Its made of carbon fiber and looks cool close up. In actuality the eyestrap is very small. Only a very small diameter rope will fit through its opening. At 9$ each I am glad I only bought one. I wish it was about twice the size that it is. The catalog says a friend of CLC hand makes these eyestraps. To install them the strap is simply epoxied in place.
All I have done building wise this week is plane the deck/hull junction on the exterior. There is a slight overhang in a couple spots that needed trimmed down.
