src Posted October 1, 2014 Share #1 Posted October 1, 2014 Hey all, I have a question regarding the size (diameter) of gun tackle and breaching ropes for the 6 pound guns on my 1790 Enterprise. "Arming and Fitting" says on pg 141, 4" circumference breaching ropes for 6-9 pound guns then goes on to say a 2" diameter rope for gun tackle. That would make the training tackle larger in diameter than the breaching rope. A 4" circumference rope is about 1.25' diameter. One of these appears to be a typo, I am thinking I am looking for something more like a 2" diameter tackle and a 4" diameter breaching rope. Thanks for any input.
