Rigging sequences


Recommended Posts

In short, no. Having the sails in place would greatly complicate attaching the shrouds, and ratlines, due to limiting the space near the masts, and risk snapping off or breaking the yards.

Well..I built my Great Republic differently this time, by rigging each mast with sails down to the upper topsail....leaving off the lower topsail and main course.  Knowing that with the yards and sails off I could easily rigg the shrouds and ratlines...THEN add the them.

This is the first model I utilized this technique.  And it has been greatly successful.


Here is an image or two to demonstrate how the shrouds are easily accessible to add.


I would add the shrouds before the yards and sails on your build.
