The wooden slat ratlines are the greatest trouble...keeping them aligned and of proportional scale.
Yes..the sails take lots of time..but it is almost laughable how just crumpling and crumpling and more crumpling along with lots of weathering is the ticket. I will be making one foremast sky sail..so complete the sail plan for this build.

Mounting the old B/W image of the moored Ferreira....gives comparison and connection...aiding in bringing to life the scene.

And a closeup of some stitching that was done to repair the old weathered canvas.
