I can assure you- there's no time onboard a ship (at sea)  to make ships in bottles.  

Boy you can say that again! But then again a 35 foot sloop can't compliment a herd of guys like a clipper could.

I too like your choice of materials.  I try to use things I find around the house as much as possible.  I went through the same problem as you did with the gun ports and eventually came up with the same solution.  One thing, instead of Popsicle sticks i use coffee stirrers.  They are thinner and easy to bend when soaked in water.  Luckily, the cafeteria at work stocks 2 different sizes! :)

Gotta take a step backward, while attaching yards, I realize how difficult it is working around side stays and backstays. 

Now , for some odd reason the Main mast has an unfortunate lean that won't correct. 

So I cut the stays. The Main has its yards on, using the "reef knot."

I. put the main topmast  ratlines  on at this time. It seemed easy enough. 

As I ponder tying the yards on the foremast tomorrow, I kinda wish now I had put them on prior to gluing down the hinge to the hull. 

Its clumsy work. 

Clear dark skies tonight, so I'll be up late with my other hobby, Galaxy hunting.

Best regards, 

Jeff

I can't take photos with my phone anymore. It's jammed. 

Says I'm  out of storage. I'm on the family plan. Other family members.....

i delete all photos when I'm done. I don't store them in my phone. 

I guess my thread is done. 

I can tell you what I'm doing on the Lexington, but without photos....

Pretty lame, huh? 

Jeff.

My phone ran out of storage once, but it was phones storage, so I have installed and sd card and now save photos to that instead. Have you checked your phone to see if it's got a memory card slot? Could be an easy option for you. Otherwise we don't mind drawings! 😂Great looking ship by the way! 👍
