The fibreglass cannon look very convincing. I hope no-one loads and fires one by mistake. Thanks for posting the progressive rigging photos. 

 After working in the emergency department for the last 20 years my feeling is that they would probably intentionally load it up and fire it just to see what would happen with the resulting trip to see my fellows 😩.   I put nothing past the “hold my beer watch this “crowd.

Not many photos today. Weather has been very dramatic with rain fog sunshine and wind. But warm, which is a nice change. We put in the a Bowsprit and Jibboom with 80% of its rig in place but dangling. So we’ve spent the last two days attaching the inboard ends of stuff and tensioning it. All the standing rig on the bow is served wire rope. There are deadeyes on much of it and tightening the lanyards requires the use of a chain fall, which is difficult to safely manouver into positions it needs to be in out on the headrig.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
