wq3296 Posted July 20, 2015 Share #1 Posted July 20, 2015 Greetings, Typically, topgallant yards do not use a pendant with a block to which the braces are attached. The braces attach directly to the yardarms, run aft to single blocks attached to the topmast stay, and then down to a fife rail, pin rail, etc., port and starboard. It seems to me that, instead of the one single block for each brace, one double block attached to the topmast stay could be used. Each brace would have a separate sheave so each brace could still be hauled independently. I look forward to hearing your opinions on this matter. wq3296 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
