Lucc if you use the sheets from the winch to a block on the bowsprit and back qnd you use this as a master sheet you can install 3 ring each side into which you hook the respektive jib sheet, i think that's exactly what Ray did on the Surprise.
I can't find any pictures off this ,can anyone help me

I also don't know what englisch words i need for searching.

I don't get any result in the searchmode.


thx luc

Thx meatbomber

but I dont understand something.

first they use this.





Why not put the pulley on top of the bowsprit. (Mayby becose he's got 2 sails and i 3 sails??)


but these (the yellow line) is not attached on the loop that go's tot the pulley.

I know the yellow line is just hanging in the air why does he needs that pulley. (or need not??)

the pulley is on Rays surprise the free hanging one is on DanLs he doesn`t have the pulley...
its`s just 2 different approaches to the same problem with more or less potential line tangle rays system with a looped master sheet should be pretty much tangle free as it can be run under tension from the winch to the pulley and back...
Dan is counting on large disks on his whinch and fairleads that allow the sheet to run relatively loose while still not getting cable salat on the drum...
I think i would go for Dans method but instead of the way he did his fairleads and under deck turning sheaves iŽd try with a thin PVC tube (bowden outer cable) that terminates as near as possible on the winch tube.. that should keep line tangle below decks at a minimum. But then he did it already and i didn`t so the only real authorities on the reliability of those systems would be Dan and Ray

Starting with the shrouds.





Ropethickness= 1.6mm .

1 Rope is 66 little ropes.

In totaal 200m rope needed for making 1 rope of 2.5m long and 1.6mm thik.

Lucc,
This is fantastic. I'm totally in love with this ship! I have a question about the cannons are you made them. For the metal jig you created, I would like to try the same method to make mine. Might you be able to explain a little more on how you made the metal jig to shape the guns? Thanks and can't wait to see her finished.

I try with my poor englisch


First this link

http://www.modelships-beagle.eu/faq/map6/a600.htm

Her you find all the canons and his info to make it.


i used this foto for my metal jig.(with adjustments)



the metal for my jigs comes from a sawblade. A sawblade that is 6 a 7cm width en 30cm long. just a cheap sawblade nothing expansieve.

the wood : don't teak a hard wood, you have push to hard fore taking some wood off and the canon breaks (just before you have almost done).

A tip :next to point X and A , you have to draw a horizontale line.

when this line touche the wood (left and right off the canon) you now that you have the correct deept of everythingand the canon is finished.

Lucc,

Can you get boxwood? I turned a caronade from it a while back and it was a joy to work and came out very smooth with good edges where I wanted them - even with a knot in it.
