Tall Ship Repair
My last post stated one of the tall ships had carried away the foremast above the trucks. It was a Russian four masted Barque. A beautiful vessel. In order to turn through the wind when they returned to Europe repairs to the attachment of jib sails would need to be made. It also appears some damage to the courses happened when the portion of the mast carried away. Here are some pictures of the repair process. In the above photo you can see a man working on attachment of the stays.
