Clew garnets


Recommended Posts

What side of the sails do the clew garnets go front or back.On my occre endeavour plans they show them on the front and on their finished ship photo they are on the front.I guess they are to hoist the sail so it depends really on which side of the sails the crew stand to hoist the sail.Thanks for any advice Ron.

Clew lines and their blocks all run behind the square sails; as do the sheet lines.  The only lines that run down the front of a square sail are the bunt lines and leech lines.
