Stockholm Vasa Museum-crow's nest

Of all the parts of this ship it is the crow's nest and particularly the jibsail crow's nest (which may be called something else entirely, but you get my meaning) that fascinated me.  What courage it must have taken to climb out on that long wooden pole to that tiny platform to hoist the sail.  Sailors, do correct me if I am wrong.  Didn't somebody have to be out there?
