Main Mast Rigging Question (One or Two Lines?)


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


I have a rigging line from the futtock plate eye bolt (not sure the correct term) to the main mast.  This is obviously done on both sides, and since the instructions don't show a top down view (or close up), I am curious should line 506 be two seized lines (option A)? Or a single seized line (option B ).  The picture below should help explain my thoughts visually.


Any thoughts or guidance would be appreciated.

Twist the line in the oppersite direction until the strands unravel and open up. Then slip the line over the top of the mast. Finish with seizings on either side.

Regards, Scott
