--I am still no wiser as to their purpose,
and no-one else had any ideas so far...?!

But I thought you may be interested to see how they were made! the regular taper
was cut from elderly over-scale ratlines...

the break though is that the masts are up !!
These were stepped in to my pre drilled holes--
that had been lined with a slightly larger diameter pieces of tube
==> to allow " tuning " of the (Dead-Upright! ) angles whilst dribbling runny CA glue down the masts and
agitating teh capillary action with a cats whisker, (! :big_grin: )
soaking uo excess with edge of torn paper( acts like a controllable sponge!

First I rigged ( extensively--the various tackles, purchases as well as
the static cables to the very large long booms fwd

Fiddly indeed ... I think I would destroy as much as I am building, while moving around. I gues a good strategy helps, such as building inside - out.

Nice update. Rigging looks great. She's rounding out nicely.
