  1. Thanks Richard, I was thinking the same after looking at the belaying positions on AoTS. BTW the pictures of your Endeavour look good Tom, you've given me something else to thing about
  2. Thanks Allan, Richard I've got a better idea now of what's going on, one thing is for certain I'm going to need more tying off points than what the plans show. Appreciate your help. MP
  3. Hi Allan Thanks for the welcome and the response. I've attached an expanded view that shows the bowsprit and hopefully makes things a little clearer. The S blocks you refer to are closed hearts and are already taken care of. I guess you are correct and the line has to be tied off at a timber head Thanks Mr.P
  4. Hi All Long time member but first time post. The Caldercraft Endeavour is my second build and I'm slowly working my way through the rigging. First build was AL's Virginia and was far simpler. I'm now at the point of rigging the stays but I can't figure out how the the blocks are rigged in the plans. I've checked various books I have and scoured many photos of build logs but I'm still non the wiser. The diagram is off the plans N is single block O is a double block I'm assuming the rope is attached the top of block N via a becket and I can see how the rope is run through block O and back through N and so on, but what do I do with the end of the rope? I cannot see how it ends or is tied off. Hope this makes some sort of sense and really appreciate any help Thanks Mr. P

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
