    Default New ships launched.

    I hereby authorise this fleet ready to sail. God bless all those who contribute to it.
    Bligh.

    Hello everyone

    I'm joining the French fleet with this first upgrade of the HMS TERPSICHORE; but I'm not going to let the Royal Navy be the master of the seas, the Aquitaine's "corsairs" are coming!

    Firstly welcome (bienvenu) to the Anchorage Chee. It is good to see you have dropped anchor here in our harbour.
    Secondly, you have made a very sound job of your repaint. Congratulations!
    As you have posted a picture on your very first post, I am also opening your account with my Rep gun and awarding you your first Rep points.
    Don't forget to pop along to the Wardroom and say hi to your shipmates, some of whom will miss you here on the French Forum.

    Rob.

    No Chee, do not worry, I simply meant that you had improved the look of the ships.

    Neptune 1803 - Ville de Varsovie 1808

    The little extra is the fitting of two jibs? (focs): the staysails of the main and the topsail. (voiles d'étai de grand perroquet et de grand hunier) I found the space between the main mast and the foremast (mat de misaine) a bit empty...

    This from Wiki explains it Chee.

    Ratlines (pronounced "rattlins") are lengths of thin line tied between the shrouds of a sailing ship to form a ladder. Found on all square-rigged ships, whose crews must go aloft to stow the square sails, they also appear on larger fore-and-aft rigged vessels to aid in repairs aloft or conduct a lookout from above.
    Lower courses in a ratline are often made of slats of wood (battens) for support where the distance between shrouds is greatest. These wooden boards are called rat-boards. In some instances holes in these slats guide and organise low-tension lines between the deck and the rig.

    Thank you Sir

    And to answer Capn Duff

    To make the "haubans" so the ratlines ! I took out some material I used a few decades ago on the Heller rig of "La Sirène" at 1/200th. Obviously reducing the scale since here it is 1/1000th.

    Although the new Henry Turner ships/ kickstarter now has a ratline printing option.
