Da Seamans Sloop

Well folks, I am going to retire on January 2 so I thought I would get started on a project to help keep me from getting bored, :) I have had a few failures lately so I'm getting back to basics with no fancy hull splits or crazy ideas for this one. I am loosely basing this on a Carolina sloop but have taken quite a bit of artists license already and am naming this, " Da Seamans Sloop " as a thinly veiled nod to D. Siemans inspirational Bermuda Sloop build.

That looks really good, I like it a lot, great details. The launch boat is a really good nice touch, bet those oars where fun to do! 😁 

Thanks James, that doggone steering wheel was worse. It still resembles a huge, steam paddle wheeler type wheel, ...unless they made them big like this for ocean going vessels??

Stealing a few ideas from you fine folks and playing with them. I put some mast hoops of "heat shrink" on the mast, not sure if I will use them but they are easy to cut off if I don't. I used heat shrink to reinforce around the holes in the bowsprit. I tried numerous methods to make blocks that looked O.K. and failed. I ended up rolling a little balls of glue and sticking them in there. Eventually I would like to buy some tools from Micro-mark to help build "little", with accuracy and tolerances, but for now my eye will have to do.   She at least fits in the bottle with room to spare.

Working on the "ocean" a bit. This is the first time I have played with this "Plastalina" and I kind of like being able to "sculpt" an ocean. I have to cut it in half then place back together once in the bottle. Still plugging away at the sloop. Sails coming soon.
