Fore Topmast Backstays.
The fore to aft sequence for rigging the backstays at the foremast port channel:

1-Breast backstay eyebolt-between deadeye 1 and 2.

2-Standing backstay 1-4th deadeye.

3-Standing backstay 2-10th deadeye.

4-Standing backstay 3-14th deadeye.

5-Shifting backstay-eyebolt just aft of 15th deadeye.

The foremast port channel is similar.

Please note:
There are other eyebolts to be installed on the channels of which I will refer to later.For purposes of clarity I didn't show there locations at this time.You may however want to install them on the channels before any rigging takes place.

As you can see my diagrams are a work in progress.I am learning this stuff as I go along.Any hints or tips are welcome.
