Reference Material for Gun Tackle Specifications?


Recommended Posts

Where's the best place to get specs for British gun tackle?

 

Are there tables to determine dimensions of breeching rope, blocks, and tackle rope?

 

Guidelines for when single blocks vs. single & double blocks should be used?  Etc.

 

Thanks,

Robert

I have the table, in Goodwin's book, with the sizes of the carriage eyebolts and ringbolts relative to the size of the shot.  However, he mentions nothing about rope or block dimensions.

 

Does anybody know if Lavery's book on the Arming and Fitting of British Ships might include this information?

 

Thanks,

Robert
