Fine work there. On a more contemporary ship, one end of the roband would go around the yard or jack stay twice before being tied.

GMrrison,

Thanks for comments and attention!Smile...You are right...and actually my knots became a little bit out of scale due to too thick thread I used...so I decided to simplify procedure and made it...how to say...schematic only...? 

Thanks!

Kirill

I wonder why jackstay eyebolts are represented on these spars?

You are doing a fantastic job.....Really.

I confess I don't see jackstay eyebolts in the pictures either - though I can't claim to have looked at every shot.

Jackstays, of course, would be completely out of place on a ship of this period. I'm sure Kiril knows that perfectly well.

Youth, talent, hard work, and enthusiasm are no match for old age and treachery.

jtilley , thanks for your remark... may be it were eye bolts for the gaskets? , which I try to demonstrate on the main yards ... but not jackstay for sure... so, gasket's eyebolts  - I did - too big Embarrassed

Meanwhile continue with sails for main mast and decided to install fore mast braces

I'm sorry but some models will attempt to mimic these eye bolts on the top leading edge of the spar.  I assumed these are what are present on your spars that you secured the sail lashing by.

Those are anchors for the sailors to attach their fall protection gear to.

i was looking over the photos I took the other day of the galleon replica from San Diego.

The robands look precisely as Kiril has modeled them, a single go round tied together on top with a knot. Otherwise the spar is as smooth as can be.

Good day,

Dear friends,

if I understood correctly - we are talking abt staples on the main spar... if yes, this I did for gaskets securing...unfortunately I made them a little bit out of scale...so they looks too big, need to be more miniature in size ...

regarding protection gear...as I could understand,in those days,there were no protection gear ,such a foot ropes for example,at least non of contemporary drwngs show them...looks like sailors working with sails like this

here ,on the foto, Fore mast main spar completed with gaskets attached

Hmmm;

 Good day,

Dear friends, thank all of you for your attention and warm  :)))

Meanwhile continue with main sails rigging...while rigging there was an issue how to secure leech lines bridles to the sail sides...seems to me there are to different ways exist -fixed with bowlines knot or leave them moveable...I choose the first one...but I think I still did it a little bit wrong due to I didn't arrange cringles for leech lines bridles but made holes insted of :((( frankly speeking I forgot to make them in time...

Duyfken replika has them moveable, Half Moon - secured by knots as I could see on the fotoes...
