OK!

I now have a ship in a bottle!

Because of the height issue, I removed my clay sea, just soaked it in water, and it eventually came away. The epoxy that held the clay in place took 10 days of soaking it acetone.

Cutting the bottom of the hull off is an option if it it done before bulwarks and rigging go on, doing it afterwards I think it would be a bit of a pain! 

Likewise, trimming the top of the masts.

I really should not have to do either.

So I glued the ship directly to the glass, and then poured in the ocean.

All I have to do now is make a base for it, and she can go onto the shelf.

Cheers

Mick
