Pulled out the Cocca Anseatica (15th. Century) by Euromodel just to have a look at the drawings.  The mast tops intrigued me and I just wanted to share them with you. They had a rope pulley system from the deck and seemed to be a method of sending up weapons and other material to a person occupying the top. Frankly, this is a guess but I hope a logical one. Just so different to the usual tops I have seen.


Any comment would be appreciated.

What a response - thanks especially to Tadeusz43 and Druxey for those photos and drawings. From an initial outside source that suggested stones to this variety of cylinders, buckets and what look like tied packages, the obvious focus is not on these items (which will vary anyway) but on the system itself of pulleys and ropes.
