The main sail emblem is a Gorgon in good old Greek coin fashion. Very little is known about the rigging, other than what is shown on amphora's and other contemporary artwork. Tried to stick as close to what we think we do know. Have used flat wooden blocks, rounded at one end with a centre opening to facilitate a quick takedown of the masts. Toggles were also used for a quick connect/disconnect.
