La Capitana di Venezia

The Mast, Sail and Flag

The mast (length 1.60cm) and the yardarm (length 2.45m) are made from beech and were stained with dark oak. The crow’s nest will carry a mercenary, proudly sitting beneath the venetian flag and keeping an eye on the lookout. The flag at the top of the mast as well as the transom are originals from Venice. The lateen sail was sewn from linen and is 1.60m x 1.60m large. The matieral for the rope is made from actual hemp. Additional functions: Reap the sail and sink the yardarm.
