Continuing the construction of the Top Yard Arm rigging the Parrels. I know there were no brass parrels back then, but I could not resist using the lathe to make a few.

I wish I had more time, I would have actually taken the time to label each line (image) - If (anyone) and you would think it would help, I can take the image taken and try to label it. However, let me say that from the image, it can be very deceiving because some of those lines, like the leech (I think) are folded back on themselves and are part of the lines that are being used to suspend the yard arm. At this point, I have transferred the assembly over to the mast to hang it all. The most tedious part of this is to get the yard arm to sit still while I attach the yard arm using the set of parrels and to get that secured. If you (or anyone else) here decide (not to) have full sails to remember that the yard arms are "lowered".
The latest. Starting to mount the Main Top Yard Arm / Parrels. Ok, so - yes, I know - there were no brass parrels back then. But, .... I got carried away with the brass - Yes, I made the brass parrels - pretty nice - even though no such thing back then.

Well, hello all modeling friends. I have worked on the main mast yard and top yard for several weeks off and on. Then for the past three days almost non stop to try and catch up. It seems as if I have a long way to go. Just before writing this, I realize that all my back stay Dead Eyes rigging has not even been touched. I did it this way to eliminate as much stuff being in the way as possible while I install the rigging for the Pin Rails. Then I continued to find things that needed to be tidied up. I guess its the details that really slow you down. Ok, so I know this is a lot of images, 40 plus or so. I wanted to make sure that whoever else is building this will be offered as many different positions and angles of shots. Now, some may find a lot of mistakes or some will think some of this is good ideas. Let me say that due to the position of the Tops Trees, it really throws off the shrouds position in relation to how the running rigging flows. However, due to my inexperience in all sorts of ship construction, I decided at the time to stick with the manual and plans. I knew of one other person that shifted his Top Trees a little Aft to compensate for some down the road problems that might occur. Just because the rigging might look pretty and nice does not mean that it is in the right position or is structured correctly. There are some that have found a huge amount of documentation recently on this forum. I want to congratulate those. All of these images are a combination of the Main Yard and the Main Top Yard because I might have left something out on the other post. Again that you for tuning in and watching this log mistakes and all. The first images starts out with the Bitts of the Main Mast. This is prime example of once you start something you have to continue it. What I mean is that I thought it would really be a nice touch to actually make and add the pulleys to the Bitts post. Well, then the others have to have it too. So, another slow down to get that done. Those pulleys where made on the lathe and they measure 4mm in diameter and 2 mm wide. As you can see there are actually two pulleys. I don't know why I ask for so much headache on this. I guess I was not satisfied with just a square opening on the Bitts post. Well enough of talking – I hope you enjoy the pictures and documentation.
