  1. @mbp521 Hello, thank you for your positive comment. I also want to thank the others for the many LIKES. Today I made the standing fore topgallants backstays. For these standing backstays, two on each side of the ship, I make the lanyards from Japanese silk 3x 3, which gives a diameter of 0.40 mm. The backstays are made of rope with a diameter of 0.77 mm, also made of Japanese silk 7 x 3. The dead eyes have a diameter of 3.4 mm. Here you can see the fore top head with the standing backstays: And you can also see the mizzen top
  2. Hi Christian, very precise and clean job. I am very interested to see how it will continue.
  3. Hello, before I start, I would like to show the mizzen topmast head with the standing backstays as a supplement to my last report. Contrary to my announcement, I will finish all the standing backstays first. It makes more sense to finish the rigging on one level first and then go upstairs. So I continued with the main topmast backstays. I made these backstays from a rope with ø 0.81 mm (8 x 3 jap. silk YLI). The dead eyes have a diameter of 4 mm). Here you can see the main topmast with the backstays. The double bl
  4. @archnav @Mic.fr thank you both for the kind comments. Thanks to the others for all the LIKES, of course. It is always a pleasure to receive such feedback. It motivates me and gives me strength for monotonous work. I have now finished the mizzen topmast backstays for the starboard side. For these standing backstays, two on each side of the ship, I made the lanyards from Japanese silk 4 x 1, which gives a diameter of 0.30 mm. The next step is to attach the shifting backstays for the mizzen topgallan
  5. In the meantime I have finished the mizzen topmast shrouds. I have made the preparations for the mizzen topmast backstays. The implementation will take place soon. Here I show how to determine the diameter of a rope relatively accurately (13,6,41 mm / 20 = 0,67 mm). The picture shows a dead eye with a diameter of 2.8 mm for the tackle to be attached to the mizzen topmast backstays on the channels. You can also see a rope with a diameter of 0.67 mm for the mizzen topmast backstays.
  6. @noel_colledge @Jeronimo Hello, I would like to thank you in advance for your attention, and of course all the others for the many LIKES. I almost forgot the tye blocks for the mizzen topmast. These tye blocks are 5 mm long, so they are smaller than, for example, the main masthead. The double strops are also thinner, but also served. The dead eyes and the block are only shown for size comparison.
  7. @captain_hook @bruce d Thank you very much for your nice comments and to all the others for the many LIKES. In the meantime I am already working on the mizzen topmast shrouds. There the dead eyes have a diameter of only 2.3 m.
  8. @Jorge Diaz O Thank you very much for your positive comment. Also many thanks to all for the many LIKES. In the meantime I have also finished the fore topmast shrouds (ø 0.67 mm). The diameter of the dead eyes is ø 3.1 mm.
  9. @Gahm @giampieroricci @aviaamator @Keith Black Thank you very much for your participation in my project and the motivating announcements. Thank you also to all the others for the LIKES. And here are the latest pictures of the rigging of the topmast shrouds.
  10. In the meantime I have created the preconditions for setting the topmast shrouds. I made the necessary ropes myself.
  11. Hello, I feel the same as Wefalck and Michael, by chance I came across this fantastic construction report. I have followed Ed Tosti's report on the construction of the Young America with great interest for a long time. Now I see your report on this beautiful clipper and the precision of your workmanship. I am thrilled and look forward to the continuation. I am grateful to you for sharing your project with us.
  12. Hello, it is always a great pleasure when you see that others show an interest in what you do. Many thanks for that. The tye blocks for the main mast top have also been completed in the meantime. I hope that the pictures speak for themselves.
