 About the project

The standing rigging is responsible for supporting the masts, bowsprit and jibboom.  There are many different size ropes that are used but scaled down we'll just be using 5 different sizes - (left to right) 3/32", lots of 1/8", 3/16", lots of 1/4" and a very little bit of 5/16".  The 2 smaller sizes are single braided and the 3 larger sizes are double braided meaning there is a braided core.  They have all been dyed black, some more successfully than others, to simulate weathering and tarring.
