Standing lug info.

Loose footed standing lug on 27ft Navy Whaler
STANDING LUG INFO: I am restoring a Navy 3-1 27ft whaler.
When I got the ship it was a wreck and had no mast, some odd bits of rigging and two sails.
After a lot of head scratching and research I realised I had a standing lug on my hands.
So I made a mast, gaff and parel-hoist and it works like a charm.
It also looks really old fashioned which is nice for the classic appearance I was after.
If anyone needs help or advice with this kind of rig, give me a shout!
I'd hate anyone else to have to go through what I had to!
