"Made Mast" Diameter

Recommended Posts

Hi Michael;


One thing which may be of help to you with masts,  depending upon what ship you are making:


The NMM have some quite detailed drawings in their plans archive,  showing how masts were made,  all drawn to scale with many sections.  These start to appear in the early 1780s,  when the supply of 'New England' masts made from single trees was disrupted by American independence. 


These cover a range of ship types,  though all Royal Navy.


All the best,


Mark P
