Schrott:

Thank you for the drawing, it looks like a nice set up and would work very well. I printed it off so I could see it, I allso saved it to my desk top, It looks like it will build up easly enough. Thankx for the drawing.

Thankx guy's:

It is more like a show, every one here has built one or two boats, so explaining how things are done, or how I did them, is a no brainer for all of you.

SO ON WITH THE SHOW!!!

If there are any question I will be more that happy to step by step it for the " new" guys/gals.

Made some more jewelry for the jib boom, got the jib boom chains strung to the bow, and am getting the fore decks ship shape.
Will keep on keeping on.
