I'm curious what those white cotton swabish like things are for and what they are called....

 

They are hammocks. They were stored there to protect sailors from shrapnel if they got into a battle.

I was wondering if it wasn't a protective barrier.  I never would have guessed hammocks, I was thinking wadding?1?  Hammock makes sense, but that canvas better be really strong....  Thanks for schooling me 😃

BTW - Your rope coils look good.  Do you have a trick for the flat coils for the cannon tackle lines coiled up on deck?  They need to be short and sweet (and tight!!).

Thanks!! I coiled the rope sandwiched between two plastic sheets after it was soaked in dilute white glue. You can check out the details here:

Well I like the coils, and it is similar to the video of a guy using two metal disks with holes in the middle around a pin in a vice grip with a spring shoving the disks together, and I can get some hard clear plastic as you suggested.  Good advice, and again those are great pics you have here of an awesome build.  I would love to have that in my home.  It is beautiful.  The long oars under the launch, are those oars stowed there, and then used out of the sweep ports?

Yeaup they were stored there to be used out of the sweep ports.
