Strange shroud run on mizzen ?


HSM

Recommended Posts

I am working on the Euromodel Friedrich WIlhelm zu Pferde (strange... spellchecker doesn't like that name!) and am wondering about the shroud run on the mizzen mast.

 

The deadeyes for the fore and main mast have wood spacers (channels) that hold them away from the hull and there is room for the rigged shrouds to clear the bulwarks. The deadeyes on the mizzen mast are attached without the spacer to hold them away from the hull, and there appears to be no way to get the shrouds to clear the bulwarks. The shrouds are forced to bend around the hull and I am certain that would never happen in real life. The shrouds would chafe badly and the railing on the poopdeck would be excessively stressed.

 

My model will be built admiralty style without masts or rigging so I will likely install the deadeyes as shown on the plans, but what am I missing here?

 

Attached are some photos that show the area:

Im sure there will be a channel of some sort there.  The pics show some sort of plank in there I think.

I would venture a guess that the location of the channel, or what would be the channel, is too low and would probably be located directly under the gun port.  If you raise the location to that point a normal width channel should work.

I found these plans of the Wilhelm in "Risse von Schiffen des 16.und 17. jahrhunderts."

There is also no explanation in the text about this.

 

There is also a picture of a painting.

Perhaps the former painter made a mistake.
And the designers of the drawings simply took over them
