dafi Posted July 6, 2014 Share #1 Posted July 6, 2014 (edited) Feeling a bit of a worried mind about the traditionally shown way of stowing the anchors. As seen on the Vic in P. come some loops around the stock and leading to the timberhead ... ... a chain around the shaft and a loop that fixes the palm on the small platform. And now the tricky questions: I wonder about those lashings of the stock. Only some turns around stock (or shaft) up to the timberheads? Please consider that still the weight is transmitted over the "thin" boards of the channels with almost no further support? And then the stream anchor on top? And should the stock of the stream anchor not be lashed onto the stock of the best bower? Would also avoid the steam anchor to turn around and give better view for the gun ... ... so I keep wondering ... ... what would be the correct way? Daniel PS: That the stream anchor usually was carried on the port side I wished to be excused in this display :-) Edited July 6, 2014 by dafi Quote To victory and beyond! http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/76-hms-victory-by-dafi-to-victory-and-beyond/ By the Deep 17 http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/1487-by-the-deep-17-by-dafi-royal-navy-17801805-display/page-4 SMS Trinkstein http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/349-sms-trinkstein-by-dafi-sos-stone-on-soil-flush-deck-frigate-of-the-austrian-mountain-navy/#entry3314 See also our german forum for Sailing Ship Modeling and History: http://www.segelschiffsmodellbau.com/ Finest etch parts for HMS Victory 1:100 (Heller Kit) and other useful bits. http://dafinismus.de/index_en.html Honorary Member of the Tic-Tac-Man-Appreciation-Society Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
