  1. Angle of ship masts

    Indeed alot of members seem to have a wide theoretical and practical knowlege, something which i unfortunately lack sometimes. Anyway it's good to share.

  3. Angle of ship masts

    Hi matrim. Thanks alot for yr reply which gave me some thoughts from a practical perspective. You are right and I agree with yr comments. Someone else gave me a reply to my query and noted that the middle mast shld be 1.5 to 2 degrees towards stern. This makes lots of sense and also goes in line with yr reply. Thnks and regards David
  4. Angle of ship masts

  5. Hi guys, I am currently building HMS Victory and have a small difficulty of a generic nature which needs some help. What is the angle at which the main mast is normally fixed to the deck? I am not sure whether this shld be 90 degrees or slightly inclined toward the stern. Drawings on the plan show the latter but i am bot sure. Thanks for yr help.
