Masts and rigging both standing and running

Recommended Posts

 I am looking for pictures of a main mast that shows what all goes and the placement including the "crows nest".  I've searched the topics here and could not find any. What I'm going to attempt is, a "model" of a mast rigged really shows the rigging blocks and dead eyes. I will try to have a different build log. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

There are various books showing what you need: the antomy of the ship-series, or Rigging period ships (Peterson) are nice examples.

The advantage of these books is that they show the rigging part by part, instead of just showing the final result. MAkes it easier to understand...
