Cathead Anchor Rigging


Recommended Posts


Does anyone have a basic diagram they could share on how lines were threaded through the cathead to the anchor hook block?  I have seen a number of pictures online showing a rigged cathead, but I can't quite make out the sequence of the line through the cathead, down to the anchor hook and back up to tie-off.  I am restoring an old Sergal/Mantua 1/78 HMS Victory so something specific to this ship would be ideal.
