Like the idea of crates. Saw them on another model and they really looked good.That's a great idea Brother. That would go on the orlop deck, but just remember that the anchor cable should be a certain size in order to pull it off. Also you may want to consider box crates in certain areas. Mind you, at the size you are working at, I am not sure if it would be feasible but man would that rock.
Yes, The orlop deck was designed in such a way as to ensure that it would allow plenty of air circulation around the damp anchor cables in order to dry. There were also slats on the deck to ensure that it got air there as well.Like the idea of crates. Saw them on another model and they really looked good.
I take it when you say 'that would go on the orlop deck', you are referring to the ropes?
I would presume that it would be too damp for ropes in the hold?
