VIII. RIGGING THE FOREMAST SHROUDS (cont.)

Calendar Icon

February 25, 2012

EDIT: Before reading, take note that I REMOVED the Futtock Stave and Futtock Staves again. I apologize as it is just due to taking note that the leading Futtock Shroud was going to interferre greatly with the Yard in place. So therefore, I had to ' mockup a yard and install it as a temporary fix so that I can determine the placement of that first Futtock. The images on the next date of February 2/26/2012 will finally show the result of all these changes. I beleive that I am happy with the results.

The images below are NOT applicable - I only keep these online so that you will see the mistake and problems.

It was good that I decided to remove all the previous work. I almost forgot that I had to do the Ratlines for the Futtock Shrouds. From the Photo, you will see that I mocked up a Yard so that I can determine the proper placement of the leading Futtock Shroud this time. I realize that most will say that the angles are wrong, but I am going by the plans. The other ships have the Top shifted more to the rear which will make the Futtocks fall somewhat striaight down, but on this ship, (I guess due to spanish design or manufacture design), I see that I would have to part way from the original manufactures drawings to so so like other ships, for instance English or otherwise.

The latest as working on the Shrouds. The Deadeye on the left is not correct spacing. So I left it there as a guide to adjust the spacing correction of the one on the right. Now that I am satisfied with it, I will dismantle the one on the left.

The latest as working on the Shrouds. I made big mistake in the fact that my upper shrouds were looped around the wrong mast head section. So, I pulled those and re rigged them. The photos below show the accurate method.

Welcome back friends. I know it has been a while since I posted and I know that there are friends eager to see what is going on. So, without much to say, I decided to rig up my Ratlines.
