What?! Another of my replies lost in the bit bucket? I did reply after reading your other post, and the first thing I said was, "I stand corrected". (The reply is probably sitting on the Group site, just like that other one of mine was.)

Yahoo! Groups – ya gotta love 'em.

Sorry! But I'm going to have to contradict you again.

It's a gallows and all the cutouts in it are for the boom, the gaff isn't long enough to reach, besides the gaff sits ontop of the furled sail which in turn is on top of the boom so would never lie alongside it. A cradle is what you lash the ships boat into on deck.
