Boccherini Posted January 4, 2015 Share #1 Posted January 4, 2015 I am currently making the pin rails for my 'Harriet McGregor' (c1860). It will be easier to drill the holes for the belaying pins prior to fitting the pin rails in place. My problem is the spacing and location of the holes. Underhill (Masting & Rigging.......), shows the majority of holes located in the area of the shrouds/backstays, with a few others in various specific areas. Is this accurate, or are there holes equally spaced along the entire length of the pin rails (which he hasn't shown for the sake of clarity)? What would be the "normal" distance between belaying pins? Grant. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
