Looks like you've had a busy week, Patrick.

Indeed, the past weeks have been very productive.

 

Weekly update. The ratlines are ready on one side of the main mast.


Work in progress.

"freshly tarred" and ready.

This week most of the time went to the rope serving tool.

The improvised workshop (The hay is for our goats, not for sleeping 🤣)

A  first test with white rope and black serving.

The device works, but  the operator still needs to gain more experience...

My home made rope serving tool. So from now on no more excuses for not making a served rope... 😉

Further on the standing rigging.

 

Foremast question :

What is the angle at which the ratlines of the foremastge are placed?
On 2 of my "live examples", they have problems keeping the same distance from the deadeyes

20210429_131902.thumb.jpg.80f5a4dd56ce18e1370212d0797771ba.jpg20210429_132004.thumb.jpg.7410dadedc8a5bad6e9100b8951202e2.jpg
Looking at drawings, the ratlines are in line with the railing and the deadeyes. So we go for the latter method.

Oops forgot this one (but this is not on Breughel's drawing)

Probably wrong

Hopefully correct

Rope serving exercise, looks good so far

Completing the  fore stays

The forestay from the mizzen mast is replaced by a served  one (looks better)

 

Mizzen

Next item the shrouds of the top masts. As always, think first, then act. And maybe redo them...😉

 

???? difficult choices...

My  example (Vasa) may not be that reliable in this rigging area after all
Since few or no iron objects were found, they also had to search and guess.

The futtock shrouds (indeed, the further you go back in time, the less you can do wrong 😉)

 

I chose to place an eye bolt with hook. More work to make eyebolts but easier to mount the rope to the deadeye.

Replace one ratline with a futtock stave. It wasn't uncommon that there were still ratlines above this futtock stave

Small update

The shrouds on the upper masts are ready.

Next ratlines

Books, as extra support for my elbow when applying the ratlines (now I understand why some of us rigg the masts as much as possible before mounting them on the model)
