Tyrnac Posted March 4, 2014 Share #1 Posted March 4, 2014 (edited) Hello all, As I reach the time to shape the masts and yards on my first vessel, I come to a question of blackening. I'm no nautical authority, but I recall reading about "properly blackened yards" frequently in Patrick O'Brian. Can anyone give me any background on this? Were most yards blackened? My vessel is a British man of war. Thanks, Tony Edited March 4, 2014 by Tyrnac Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
