  7. Well it's time to resurrect this project and get it done! It has been over 2 years. I will start to post soon. The Preussen is going to be a bit of a stinker as there is a ton of rigging involved. There is going to be some head scratching for sure. Stay tuned! Chass 😵

  13. Some more work on the running rigging and ratlines on the mizzen/spanker! Slowly getting things sorted out! Below is a shot of the stern, working on the ratlines and painted the emblem detail.

  20. For me, I am part of an Incident Management Team in our Emergency Operations Center. We have declared a State of Emergency. Our EOC is at level 3, 4 is the highest you can go.
