So, like an asshole I didn’t do this before I put all the Shackles on to the Eye Pins which go into the Pin Rail. I could have avoided a lot of headache had I predrilled these holes. Oh well, live and learn. At least on my next ship, which is an early 19th Century British Frigate, they’ll use Blocks and Dead Eyes instead of more modern Shackles. The Belem was made in 1898 so it’s pretty modern compared to those old period Vessels.
