Love ya work. So on that theory as all masts and yards are built with sails and all rigging off ship do you then start from the bottom sail and tie off as you go then work up the ship
After the 3 masts are on ship and standard rigging done is this correct on what i read
Cheers snowy
Ps as my first ship with 21 sails and crowsnest× 3 cheers

Ok maybe badly written
1 all masts and yards with all rigging built off ship
2 put sails on yards with all rigging fixed
3 then put masts on ship with standard rigging
4 add yards with sails
5work from bottom to top with sail rigging and all other rigging
How does that sound not there yet Cheers snowy20181104_192922.jpg

Absolutely the best written explanation I have seen on this subject. I like to do as much as possible off the ship. I usually rig all my blocks to the masts and yards Prior to installing them

Just came across this thread WONDERFULL, GREAT EXPLANATION DONNIE, I have come to the point of my GUNBOAT PHILADELPHIA build wher it is time put the mast and spars and do te rigging and I tremble I DO NOT LIKE TO DO THE RIGGING I PREFER TO USE STUB MASTS FOR two reasons ONE IS ROOM AND THE MAIN ONE IS I AM REALLY LOST DOING THIS PART as THE SPRS AND MASTS AND THE RIGGING ON THE PHILADELPHIA IS VERY DETAILED ON THE PLANS AND NOT TO COMPLICATED I AM GOING TRY TO DO IT ON THIS BUILD, MAY HAVE TO ASK FOR HELP A LOT.
