Hi all, Just made the mast for my Crash Tender in brass. But I'm wondering,...where did the ropes go that the ensigns or signal flags are on? There's a single block on the trees of the mast, but how is the rope arranged? Is it a loop? After all a crewman standing by the mast could attach a flag without the ropes even moving. Where is such an arrangement belayed? Where does the other end go? And then there's the one at the top. I can see a cleat on one side of the hatchway, but once again where does the other end go to?
Same question for the flag staff aft.

Should read Niceties, can't edit.
