tkay11 posted a topic in H.M.S. Triton, 28 gun frigate (Cross Section)I've been puzzling where to place the two gun tackle bolts aft of the rearmost gun on the cross-section. The plans for the gun tackles clearly show that the bolts be placed at 3.17mm and 4.35mm respectively (at 1:48) from the edge of the gunport, but the aftmost gun bracket placing means there's only a 1.65mm space between it and the gun port. The bracket itself is 2mm wide. I suspect that the bolts would therefore have to be placed on the other side of the bracket, a bit wider than indicated by the plans, but I thought I'd better check with the more knowledgeable here before drilling for either bracket or tackle bolts and rings. Thanks as usual for any help! Tony
