  2. Here's my final result, Charlotte Rhodes. I kept an informal log of how much time I spent and what I spent it on. Came out about 54 hours, with 10 spent on the hull, 8 on launching and finishing it in the bottle, 6 on the deck furnishings, 6 on the stand, 5.5 on the mast and spars etc. I actually thought it would have been more like 80 or 90 hours. Did anyone else ever track their hours?

    In the UK a reamer is a precision engineering tool similar to a drill bit, but which leaves a very smooth finish and is used to take a hole drilled or bored in metal which is deliberately just undersize up to the final dimension. Come in a range of sizes from small to very large, and I believe can be tapered. I've only ever used one during my apprenticeship during the 'how to drill holes' phase. One of these would definitely violate the above treaty. Stay safe all. Cheers Alan

    To say this has been an exercise in patience, would be a gross understatement. I got 'er in the bottle without "major" disaster but there were quite a few things that went wrong. The post on the stern broke off(in the bottle), that was an absolute bear to try to glue back on for the rigging to loop on. My control lines all broke, ( foolishly used thread I had not tried before) I got glue in the peg holes, ...before the pegs got in there, I still have a bit of glue residue inside the bottle that I think I will be able to clean alright. My stern lantern wouldn't fit through the neck so I had to
