__________________________________________________ ____
Formula To Find The Circumference Of Any Rope At Any Scale.
__________________________________________________ ____

1/TPI X 22/7 X scale =rope circumference.

Using a dowel mark off 1" in length.Take the rope that you want to find the circumference of and wrap the dowel with the string,thread or whatever you are using.Then count the number of turns it takes to cover the 1" length already marked on the dowel and that is the TPI(Turns per inch).Multiply that number by 22 over 7 and then multiply that by the scale that you are working with and that will give you the circumference of the rope as it exists in real life.
Example: 1 over 24(TPI) multiplied by 22 over 7 multiplied by the scale of your ship 78=10.2"(approx) circumference .

Step 47

Jib Traveler Outhauler

Note: this is actually part of the running rigging and a biege colored rope should be used. Installing it now is a good idea because it will be too hard to work on later.

Tie a 12" single becket block to the eyebolt on the front face of the bowsprit cap.Tie a 3 1/2" biege rope to the jib traveler above the boom,lead it forward and down through the sheave in the neck of the jib boom,and back towards the bowsprit cap,tying a 12" double block in its end.Connect the blocks with 3" beige rope in a luff tackle,and tie off the fall .

The last pic shows a typical yard with its horses (footropes),its stirrups supporting them and its flemish horses of single loops of rope under the yardarms.These are better installed before the yards are fitted to the mast,but care must be taken to make them fit so that they hang below the yard when they are in place.The horses sag below all yards,their inner ends crossing each other and tied off around the yardarm beyond the yards center point.Stirrups are evenly spaced along the yard.Flemish horses are tied around eyebolts screwed into the tips of the yards.

I am a 3D guy and not much of an illustrator and this is my first attempt at an illustration. I worked it up in photoshop as a test for future illustrations.There are areas on my Victory that I just cannot reach properly with my camera so I think that a few drawings are in order.
The one below is of the starboard side of the bowsprit looking down.

The white caulk on the blackboard look is quite effective in that no one really expects to see a work of art using this medium.It gives it more of a instructional look as you would find in a school type setting.I think that I will stick with the idea.

Well that is not quite the chart that I expected,mine was all in neat rows!

Anyway, to read the chart from port to starboard it goes like this:


Name of yard-Horses ,rope size-Stirrups,each side-Stirrups, rope size-Flemish H
A dash on the chart means"not required."

Step 48

Spritsail Yard Halyard

Connects to two eybolts one at the center of the yard and the other at the bowsprit cap.Connect these with a of 9" rope.
Note: this arrangement replaced the original twin block and fall halyard that was there prior to the 1803 refit and is correct for the Trafalgar date when at harbour rig.
