Mike,
The Mondfeldt-book gives also a very good guide about the different rope sizes.

Ahoy Ship Mates,
Back at work in my tiny ship yard.
I last wrote about making the Futtock Shrouds with dead eyes, and beginning the tying of the Fore Mainmast Rat-Lines.

With the Rat-Lines done it’s time for the Topmast Shrouds, and Futtock Shrouds.

This is an addition to my last build log. I wanted to put on some tall photo but this log doesn't like them. they keep showing up laying down.
So here are some photos of my topmast dead eyes.
More to come.
