Attaching Gaff to Mizzen Mast

I attached the Gaff to the Mizzen Mast using some Brass Beads as Parrels.

Beads

I used both Black and Brass Beads just for kicks… I doubt it’s historically accurate but it doesn’t look too bad…

Then I used the lifting blocks for the first stage of connecting to Mast. This is called Throat Halliard.

Peak Halliard

This portion of the Rigging of the Gaff is called Peak Halliard.
