  1. Great explanation of Victory's rigging! It's amazing to think about the intricate details that went into constructing a ship like this, especially when it comes to the rigging. The standing rigging and running rigging each had their own specific functions, and it's fascinating to know that seamen had to climb the masts using ratlins and futter shrouds. Thanks for sharing this piece of history!
