Before a Christmas me and my friend completed first stage of maritime outfit in one Tavern in Warsaw. There are many pictures here you may find two of them.

Hi Marcin,

Did you create all of the rope work?  if so, how about a list and pictures of the knots you have used.

Hi Derek,

Yes I did (me and my friend) :)

We did all ropework and necessarry carpenter work.
Used jute ropes with diameter:
- shroud are 35mm
- all wall TH are 20mm
- ratline are 12mm
- lanyard are 14mm
- guard-rail are 30mm

All splices are seized and whipped using 2 and 3 mm except shoruds where 4 mm were used.
We did eyesplice on every dead-eye. A rat-line were back-spliced as usually and seized.

The shouds are mounted using 14mm anchor with eye-nut - you may go up and down :)

A tent sling over a bar is tied with a bosuns knots (single strand diamond knot) using 10mm of rope.

A guard-rail completed with wall and crown knot doubled.
