Maybe you could show us the rigging drawings for the complete bowsprit? Here we can see only an excerpt, so no guess in moment.
Or somebody who build the same model can explain (if he/she remembers).
Maybe @Anthony1 can answer .... he is building the same model in moment
this is my first attempt at a build log , i have made several ships in the past but never had anyone look at them in any detail so i don't know how good or bad they are , anyway , i was encouraged by the forums admins to start one so here goes. i have already finished the second planking on the...
Hi guys. I’m back again. Confused. I have dry rigged my lower shrouds and the standing rigging to the outer belay pins to find that the standing rigging passes through the shrouds. I can’t see a way round it. Is this correct?

There is no running rigg rope running through the shrouds and ratlines. The ropes go parallel to the mast or behind the shrouds to the deck.
There are numeroues models in prestigious museums of the world that are not accurate and many kit manufacturers provide completely outdated model reconstructions.
In my opinion, Karl Heinz Marquardt' book is the best interpretation.
It is the German translation of the English original "Captain Cook's Endeavour", Anatomy of the Ship Series.
The ropes run in the direction of travel in front of the shrouds but on their back side through the mast-tops to the belaying-pins. The Corel drawing is wrong. The ropes for the clue-lines of the forecourse or maincourse (mainsails) run in front of the shrouds.
Thanks Thomas. After a day of scratching my head I have realised that my belay pin rack is in the right place the holes are not. I drilled the right amount of holes equal distance apart. If you look at the plan they aren’t. So my cunning plan is to drill an additional belay pin hole forward. Move all the tie down points one pin forward and it will all fit with maybe one of the rigging lines just kissing the forward shroud without passing through it. I think I said before I wasn’t happy with the plans but my wife did buy me the kit 20 years ago.
I know it is a bit late to answer -I lost your message - I have been through all the Images -some making more confusion than help. In one of the Images, I will attach, you can following the Rig. from564, 585, 586,588,589,590 . This all started with the upper Yard of the bows, and end on the pin rail. Your first drawing made it clear to me that it was either to fasten one of the two yars.
