Vivian is a champ for not only putting up with my explanation of square-rig seamanship and terminology for an hour, but even having (or doing a good job faking) enthusiasm about it.
Picture 1: Sails and rigging. This is a forestack, but you can get a sense of how it’s all arranged and the amount of stuff that’s up there in the rig.
Picture 2: Deck from aloft. Notice the tripping hazards.
Aaaaand now it’s time to stop being the “nautical consultant” for the Tempest and start being a dutiful student.
Awesome rig shots.
