src Posted September 6, 2014 Share #1 Posted September 6, 2014 (edited) I am in the process of making the hooks for my gun carriage rigging. Now that i am about 25% done forming them I suddenly started thinking (a dangerous thing thinking) Should the point of the hook be perpendicular to the eye or parallel? My thought is that with the point of the hook at right angles to the eye the block will lay straighter. Will it effect my rigging at all? Am I over thinking this? Looking at this link it appears they want to be perpendicular: http://www.history.navy.mil/library/online/consitutiongundeck.htm Thanks for any advice, Sam Perpendicular Parallel Edited September 6, 2014 by src BANYAN 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
