Re: Standing/Running Rig diagrams?

by "authentic" what i meant was that i intend on trying to make the rigging look like it should. the boat i am building is only 11.75' long, so really getting rigging and everything is slightly overkill. But its the presence and style that i am going for. I will most likely be using a synthetic rope as they (from what i hear) offer up less complications.

What i was looking for was .. yeah.. diagrams of how to make the things and such, or how they are rigged up. I cant find detailed enough pictures online, and mostly just modern things with wenches and electric motors on youtube.

As for joining a yacht club... well.. im 400 miles from anywhere that uses sailboats on a regular basis.. and probably a good 1000 from anywhere where ill find a real gaff ship. In fact... the largest lake within an hour drive from me kills every thing that enters it. So thats that.

Thanks for the replies!
