    I think you will need two servos, with a sheet and line going to the end of the yard on each side. You will be able to join these together so that you only have one line going to each servo. I base this on my knowledge of Thames Barges where the main sheet and the vang (A line going to the top end of the sprit) are joined and come to a servo. With a square sail this will have to be duplicated in order to give the sail a decent shape. The real keel would have had separate lines, a sheet on each side and lines going to each end of the yard. You can probably make this out in your photos.

    I bow to your superior knowledge of keels, Jacko, both Norfolk and Humber. Thank you for posting plans of both types, very interesting. I wish you luck in building your project.

    Cheers, Nerys

    No doubt you have studied the plans of the Humber Keels quite thoroughly. Are they in your opinion very much different from what you can conceive from you newly acquired Norfolk Keel plan. I can't imagine there is a lot of difference, so wouldn't it help to use what you know of the Humbers when redrawing the plan for the Norfolk.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Yes Jacko, the lines you have are most likely of the keel as she was found, so I am sure you are quite able to fill them out and make them look more realistic. I look forward to hearing all about what I am sure will be a very interesting build.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Very pleased to hear that you have managed to acquire the plans for a Norfolk Keel. Is she very much different to the Humber variety? I know that they carried the squaresail like a Humber, but did they ever stretch to the topsails and topgallants?

    Cheers, Nerys
