  1. 3 Masts; Spanker, Jigger, and Mizzen completed to date. Also starting to work on all of the ratlines.
  2. Love this build and your creativity. Well done!
  3. I rounded up all of my parts I had made over 3 years ago for the masts et al. Today was a job planning session to get organized. Started on the Spanker! Thank goodness for Ashley Book of Knots, as I have to do a twist/knot when inserting the mast complete with the yards/spars in one go when it's time to insert everything into the bottle. This is where the work gets interesting*
  4. Finished the bowsprit, will start on all of the masts tomorrow.
  5. Welcome aboard Mate! Greetings from Canada.
  6. Forecastle area completed. Working on the Bowsprit etc.
  7. Finished deck items on the midship. Gangway completed moving forward to the Forecastle.
  8. Working on the deck and fitting her out. If you look closely at the shack at the stern you can see I just glued it. I have some more handrailing and another ladder to install on the aft, another funnel as well. Then I'll move to mid-ship to install some handrailing and two funnels on to and 2 below. Then I'll move forward to install the walkway from mid-ship to the bow area. Slow but sure, the CV variants have kept me extremely busy at work trying to navigate work flow and staff issues.
  9. Thanks guys I am glad you like it more to come in the next few weeks!
  10. Fair enough John, yeah no commitment as an honorary member whatsoever. I just want to recognize you and your past and present involvement. As far as an article, I can just create a small submission on BSW and then link it back to here for any updates etc. Your suggestion makes sense. Too bad about your business as everyone is suffering these days due to CV-19.
  11. Hey John very cool. Question would you be willing to summarize everything and put it into an article for the Bottled ShipWright Journal? Secondly, I would like to add you as an honorary member of the Journal. Are you okay with it? Jeff
  12. Yes this is very sad news. I had the privilege to get to know Terry through email response/correspondence. She passed the baton on to myself for editing the ShipWright magazine etc. She will be missed. For this years edition I will try and put together a special remembrance edition in her honor.
