Surely I'm missing something in my Amati Vanguard kit. There should be 6 curved pieces that are part of the cap rails 2 curving from the poop deck 2 near midships, and 2 from the forecastle. I see them installed on other Amati Vanguard build logs but I cannot find them in my kit or on the plans showing the parts. Can someone point me where to find them in this kit? I must be looking right past them, its quite frustrating knowing they must be there somewhere
So I have been pitched a question and I can't think of anyplace to ask other than here in hopes that someone may have some good information. The other day I was doing some research at work (it was a rare slow day) and a co-worker saw the age of sail ships on my screen and asked me a question that took me by surprise. He asked me about the state of the sails when a warship went into action. Now I've read a lot of fiction but I could not answer that question. So in hopes perhaps someone here will know: When an 18th century warship went into battle were there any special orders made in regards to the sails and rigging? I am sure that wind and position relative to the enemy would have an effect on orders but was there anything that would have been ordered each time? I'm sure I could find some books on it but as I was asked the question I was hoping to get a faster response here. Thanks! PS: I apologize if this is the wrong place or an improper post, I'm still pretty new here.
