Eh, it comes and goes. Usually the worst in the spring time. We're planning a trip back this July, so that should tie me over until next year!

Thanks for the welcome though. I figured I've been lurking long enough. I ought to head over to "Dock Talk" and make a formal introduction.

Was really getting into all the history and had myself talked into taking a day trip out to see her, then I found this... What a drag. Might have to head over and check out the Center for Wooden Boats anyway.

Yes the Wawona is gone, but we can still build her.

I've been working alot so have not had much time to work on the hull, but I was able to get up the sides a bit more, still need to come up about 3/4" on the bow and stearn, then I can fair her out for glassing.

Thanks guy's
Yes she is big but for a 3 masted schooner she's not that tall, so I don't think I'll have a problem in transport, It's the loading and unloading that maybe a problem.

I don't think so, the hull is the fast part, the tricky bit's are just around the corner.

True words of wisdom... you've built a few boats I'm guessing?

The small details take forever... maybe they are never really done!

Retired for now
Very nice looking build Ropanach. You planking patterns look great and the size is awesome. Bet she'll look super in the water. Pete
