Bounty Beak gratings
- by Armstrob On Sep 07, 2014 - 8:16 PM

Need help with folding furled sails
- by pennsyfan1941 On Sep 04, 2014 - 10:22 AM
I am repairing/restoring a four-masted barque that has furled sails. I would like to find help with folding new furled sails that do not look as bulky as the old ones. The original builder looks like he used linen that looks out of scale. I have a material called "modelspan" an equivalent of Silkspan. Also would like to change the color from its present white to one looking more like sail cloth. Any ideas or information would sure be appreciated.
