Today I fitted horses to the jibboom and flying jib and also managed to squeeze in bowsprit netting.

Bowlines are now fitted to the main top sail. I also added 2 bowline blocks under the cap of the foremast for the bowlines. The latter was a nightmare to install and I had to undertake some remedial work to other parts of the rigging.

I added brail lines to the mizzen staysail - I'm not sure if this would be historical correct?

I added some super small coils on top of the flag lockers and rigged the sheet lines of the main stay sail. I used an alternative method for this with hand made 3 mm blocks and eye bolts. As the wind in the sail blows from the port side I tried to slack the tension on the starboard side sheet line.

That looks so nice.

You have done a brilliant job on all of that ropework.

The main topmast staysail is now rigged. I added brail lines, a downhaul and used an alternative method to connect the sheets - some of it6 I made up (a bit).

Except for 2 downhaul lines all the staysails are now in position - I'm happy with the overall progress so far - perhaps a couple of hundred hours to go.
