Mizzen Mast Blocks
Leave a reply
So… I use a Figure Eight Noose for the Blocks and a Clove Hitch with an extra hitch for securing to the Ramp.
Then I loop the loose end back and glue it with some Fabri-Tac.
I thought about Siezing all the line… But I thought why bother?
I’m adding these Blocks now so I don’t have to deal with going inside the rigging in order to do it later.
I used a Clove Hitch for those Tri-Blocks that go on either side of the Foremast.
I use mostly the Figure 8 Noose for the Blocks and I glue the loose end of the line to the working end.
Also a Taut-Line Hitch… If I’m able. Otherwise I end up doing a simple Square Knot in order to get it tight and do another loop over it.
