Hi all


I'm trying to build a civilianised version of a 1/64 British navy cutter and want to hang a boat off stern davits, which I will have to scratch build. I'm fine with the davits themselves, but don't know how falls work or what they should look like, both at the davit and the boat ends. Can anybody help? Thanks in advance if you can.

I guess the true answer would be 'it varied'.


But for the davits and falls the Harriet model would provide a good example https://collections.rmg.co.uk/collections/objects/66775.html



For the boat, a simple eye bolt and ring through the stern post and stem or a ring under a clamping plate for heavier boats. (Both above the CoG).






I do know, that I don't know, a whole lot more, than I do know.
