What your looking at rocketman, is the block & tackel to "lift" the ships boats.  The line that pules the boats off the side of the ship, is atached to the end of the lower main sail yard.  working on blocks and mast caps now.

Excellent build so far!  I love that model, although I built mine with many after market products from www.HiSModel.com.  Again, nice job!

Looks great! I understand that there are critics of this kit, but it matches well the drawings in Les Vasseaux du Louis XIV written during that period.
