Re: Standing/Running Rig diagrams?
How authentic do you intend to get with the standing rigging Chiko ? Wire or rope ? If rope, natural fiber, synthetic or natural fiber with a wire core ?
I believe you may find some of the mechanics for rigging in a traditional method in the "The Complete Rigger's Apprentice" by Brion Toss.
Brion Toss Yacht Riggers, Sailboat Rigging
It won't say "Here's how to rig the forward lowers on a gaffer" so much as "Here's how to rig a deadeye then parcel and worm it"
"Just call me TB"
