Rigging
« on: June 30, 2008, 01:07:08 PM »

Give me a three masted square rigger any day and I will rig it for you, maintaining as closely as possible to historical accuracy.

Give me an early 20th century tug and I am all at sea. The problem is that in order to rig my Lady T, I have 10 shrouds, 2 sets of halyards and 2 foremast stays to rig, all of which start on the main superstructure, but belay to points outside it. As the superstructure is removeablefor internal access, I cannot figure out how to rig it so that it looks accurate and yet allows me into the hull!!!

I have thought about hooks, but that is not really viable as there will be too many and it will not look real. The only other thing I can come up with is basically to leave the standing rigging off and just do a simile of the running rigging.

Any ideas will be most welcome.....My brain is beginning to hurt now....

No secret, just a way of applying the rigging using screws with hooks attached, making it easier to adjust and remove.

I find it quite frustrating when people answer a question by PM.
You think "great question I've always wanted to know that," then the answer comes back sectretly, and you are none the wiser.
Not much point in a forum if we don't know the answers..................

Right I will explain , if you look through my 1000 plus post you will see its the first time I have done it , there was a reason I wanted to send some large picture files, I think they where a couple of meg that gave detail of very small brass bottle screws that had a hook filed on the end that was about 3/32", I thought there would not be enough detail in the pictures If I reduced them to a size that could be posted on the site, so you missed out on a couple of pictures of bottel screws.. Happy

No  O0 just seems to happen when it's something I was wondering about as well, nearly as bad as not clipping previous posts
