I see 19 people here, half of the crew doing a hard job without winches. When I look at the abundance of the other rigging, it's only a tiny fraction of their ongoing work. Then remembering that it has to be done at sea in bad weather and in the high mast or on the yards, I'm glad I was spared this later.
The top man on the tackle is probably screaming for courage. Those on deck are pulling on the hawser and hope that everything works out. Note the coffin nails and the order in the mess. Wonderful the different trousers and the belts.
Those were Ozzie the sailors of yore.
No more, no less.

Looks like they are about to sheet home a sail, the upper topsail perhaps. Whatever, what I would like to know is what "coffin nails" might be. Rigging screws perhaps, or else belaying pins, I cannot believe it really is meant to be nails for the coffins ("Sargnagel").

Ah! I see, "Koffeinagel" anglicized! Of course, I was only considering the today more common "Belegnagel" for belaying pin. Sorry to have to correct your choice of English words to represent German ones once more, but truly, this one was a bit funny.

Just roll with the punches and keep on posting! We sailing ships nerds are a small minority and need each other on this site!

I love to see these pictures of sailing ships and their crews. My grandfather went to sea as an apprentice in 1898 and he served his apprenticeship in sail in Principality and Loch Trool. I inherited many of his personal records and photos and a collection of books on sail, mainly by Lubbock.

In the '60s, cigarettes were called coffin nails (in the US, anyway).
