    I have been trying to view some of the videos and they do not play. I am wondering if anyone has reported this issue to you?
    Synthetic Rigging the Rhodes 27 VARYA – A Brion Toss Legacy Project is one that I can’t view.
    Tradtional Rigging 11 and 11 and among others I can’t view.
    Please email me @ or text me @ 631-742-1376 and let me know about the video issue. Thank you. Rich

    HI, 13 parts of Myles Thurlow’s traditional rigging are announced, but I only found 11. Where are the other two, 12 and 13? Or were they never made

      Thanks for the reminder Dees. Our apologies … there was some debate at the time whether the last two parts in the series had new info/techniques or were repetitive, and then we got distracted. We’ve looked at them thoroughly again and the last two parts of this series are now in the editing queue.

    Fascinating. So on the second set of turns (5:15), you want them to sit in the ‘hollows’ made by the first set of turns?

    Beautiful job. Something I would enjoy doing. That isn’t a shop you’d want to walk around barefoot in, with all the wire cut offs. 😁 Thanks for this OCH.

    Up until now “Parceling & Serving” were just words in my sailing dictionary. Understanding the method involved in doing the task was made clear with Myles’ excellent explanation of the process. Great video.

    Brilliant stuff right here. Myles is not only continuing the skills and art, but also teaching all of us too. I cannot get enough.
    The simple yet clever ways to add leverage and tension ( ‘it’s just a stick!’ ) are awesome to watch in practice. These videos are pure gold.

    It is just amazing to me how much this young man knows about traditional techniques and how skilled he is! It makes me happy to know that this knowledge is kept alive in his capable hands!
