Howdy Folks,

Lots of little knot tying today.

The nylon thread springs out straight when trying to get it wrapped around those thin cross bars...or whatever they are called.

I need an illustration reference showing how to run the lines to and from the sails. Searching the Internet hasn't been much help.

You might want to treat yourself to a copy of “The rigging of ships in the days of the spritsail topmast, 1600 - 1720” (catchy title, isn’t it) by RC Anderson. It was written in the 1920’s and remains one of the best sources of rigging details of the time.
The dates are a bit later than the San Salvador but rigging was very conservative and slow to change.
It’s long out of print I think but a quick search found lots for sale online. Might be available in Barnes and Noble in the USA.

I don't do ships much, and never rigging, but I love reading about those who can and do, so I read a lot of ship threads. Since I haven't applied anything on rigging, except on the Setubune over five years ago, I don't remember what I discovered from the threads on what material to use. I do remember reading that nylon was hard to work with.


You might try to PM some of the masters or go back and re-read some of their threads

Don't let the original date discourage you. AFAIK it's been reprinted by Dover, who seldom lets a title get out of catalog.

San Salvador Completed

Howdy,
Rigging is finished after spending fun hours many of which were spent researching the Internet attempting to find appropriate rigging references.
