Please note:

Somewhere down the road I intend to go back and edit each step to include rope sizes,actual run of the rigging and belaying points of both the standing and running rigging and any other useful info that I can think of.Any ideas or suggestions are welcome.Cheers! John.

Note: the running rigging is pulling too hard on the mizzen stay and distorting it,this stay is heavy and should show more weight.

Please note: This info that I am recording here would also be quite useful for anyone contempating building the new HMS Vanguard kit in 1/72 scale.(or any other scale for that matter)
It was a ship of the line from the same era as Victory and would have been rigged pretty much the same way.
I really know nothing about this kit good or bad and I haven't even seen the rigging instructions yet.Just a thought! Cheers. John.

Step 34

Fore topgallant stay

Hack P67

Long P 223 Fig 165

The following information will be edited into each step in the future.
Attach one 8 " becket block to the port knighthead.Attach a 4 1/2 " TPI....(I will explain TPI later)rope at the collar of the foretopgallant mast,knot it around the outer end of the jib boom and lead it back to the port knighthead.Tie a 8" double block to its end.Connect the two blocks in a luff tackle with a 2 1/2" (TPI) rope,belaying the fall around the knighthead.

I am also planning a "Belaying points diagram" to illustrate ,by number, each of the steps referred to in my headings.

Unfortunately I can't edit my posts for some reason and that is why everything is all over the place. {:-{
This pic belongs with the mainstays step.

Step 12 cont...

Jeer blocks are three sheave and they hang just below the level of the tops by means of a 7" rope loop around the masthead turns.These turns made first,are of 4 1/2 " rope passed six times round the masthead and through the mast cleat on the opposite side from the block,so forming a strop.These cross front and rear of the masthead.The jeers on the mainmast are 28" and those on the foremast are 26".

Step 13 cont.....


Make a series of simple overhand knots in a length of 4" rope.Clove hitch the center of this around the outer end of the jib boom and tie the other two ends together around the jib boom behind the bowsprit cap.To look natural,allow the ropes to sag beneath the boom under their own weight .
