i just looked at the photo and realized the cannons are out too far, and should be angled more horizontally........this was the first time i tried on the canons....by the way...the samples that cliffhanger sent me were the same as the ones i got....wheat

As great as your boat looks Vic it will look even better with every line of rigging you put on it. The rigging is my favorite part of building a sailing ship and it makes the ship come to life. Looking forward to your posts of that work. Pete

i was hoping to avoid using ca glue which i usually love to use on the rigging, cause i'm starting to feel negative effects from it...especially indoors in the winter..... ...is there anything else which is very liquid and fast drying and kinda invisible or flat drying??.....signed glueless.....

ok...first...how i attached the yards...used two sizes of brass tubing to reduce friction
second....the pin holding up the topmast
third....pin removed...topmast down...and the forestays...of course i've cheated and instead of winding them, i covered them with heatshrink tubing to give an impression
forth and fifth...wadyaknow...i found some figures which are pretty close to what i needed....lots of dressing up to do
sixth...skeletons came along with them...hmmm....don't know what to do with them.......maybe skeletons in the rigging

Yard attachment

yanc -
each of your posts is impressive.
Where did you get your twisted line? Really nice looking stays - you have "the touch".
On your yards - if you are serious about actually sailing, you need max yard rotation. Your yard attachment is likely too close to the mast. As the yards come around, they will hit the shrouds at likely less than 45 deg rotation. That sucks for ability to sail into the wind. To get more rotation, keep the rotation point as-is, located on the mast, but extend the pivot arm to the yard out about 3/4 inch. That will offset the yard as it rotates and allow a lot more rotation before hitting the shrouds.
55 deg rotation makes sailing much more practical than 45 deg.
