  11. Hi all I have just started rigging the guns on the main deck as they are under the cross deck and would be a pain to rigg them after it was fitted. The problem I have are the guns fitted with in haul tackle or were they pulled inboard by hand like the Vasa . I have looked for any reference to this but can't seem to find any . Cheers for any help. Martyn
  12. Hi all just wondering how far the blue paint came down the hull, on my instructions it comes down to the top of the middle gunports but on some of the pictures I have seen it comes down to the bottom of the lower gunports? So a bit confused on which one is right. Thanks in advance for any assistance. Martyn
