  1. Hi all, I am building my first wooden model and I would like to ask few questions about how to install the bowsprit on my model, which is a Mayflower from Artesania Latina. The instructions are not helpful in this respect. I have just completed the first planking and I am doing the decks. - Assuming that the angle shown in the A.L. drawings is correct, which method do you use to keep the drill bit at the wanted inclination? - How do you start the drilling? - Does the bowsprit mast hole cut also into the front bulkhead or stays only on the bow deck?
  2. The bee (and bee block) were small appendages fitted near the forward end of the bowsprit on either side and appeared around about 1700. Their function was to assist with a number of stays through the provision of one or more sheaves in each bee. Whilst Lee has accurately described these for English ships in his text, I am wondering how much they differed in structure and positioning and time when included on French ships such as the La Renommee (launched in 1744). Any guidance would be much appreciated. Pete
  3. It's a bit late in the game for me, but every time I've looked at my Sherbourne deck recently I've had a nagging suspicion that something is odd. It was this morning when I had another look that it dawned on me. All the cutter models I've seen, as well as the plans in the AOTS book of the Alert by Goodwin and the plans for other cutters, show the bowsprit supports fore of the windlass, and their bitts include the pawl for the windlass. The following are pictures I've taken during my visit to Chatham as well as at the Science Museum store: The following
  4. In his table of dimensions for 90-ton cutters, Steel gives the dimensions of the heel rope for the bowsprit, and describes the heel rope as follows: the "Heel-rope reeves through a leading block, hooked to an eye-bolt in the bow, then through a sheave-hole in the heel of the bowsprit, and the standing part makes fast to a timber head or eye-bolt, and the leading part is connected to the windlass". I find this a bit hard to follow, as I understand that the heel rope is to haul the bowsprit out. I wonder how the mechanics of this worked. So I would be grateful if any one could point me to dr
  5. Sorry, everyone, but now that we've had the discussion about backstays, I've traced my puzzlement about the rigging of the bowsprit on the Sherbourne and would like to check that I have it right. My conclusion so far is that there was no need for a bobstay (or that it would hamper things) for the bowsprit on the Sherbourne because of the need to move the bowsprit in or out. Petersson shows no bobstay on his cutter, and Goodwin neither shows nor discusses a bobstay in the AOTS book of the Alert. The kit plans for the Sherbourne show no bobstay. The only reason I ask is because my p
