Hi Walter, I've been there done that. Its very exhilarating when the second guy steps out onto the footrope, and this is tied up at the dock. Also one has to lean backwards out into space to get around the crosstrees to get up to the next yardarm. Can't imagine doing it in a blow. I just added another square-rigged vessel gallery if you wish to take a peek.http://www.pbase.com/parpho/boats_062611
Cheers
