I am back in home in Mazatlan, grandchild is fine, someone trashed my shed while I was gone, moved everything into spare room. Wife not happy, I am not happy. Started the build anyway.

 

I am not a photagrapher, hell I can't even spell it.

 

I think a need some sort of macro setting.

I have seen this kit but never have known anyone who was or has built it.  Is this your first kit?

Wow I haven't seen just a section of it before. This will be a pretty interesting build log once you get started. Good luck on it!

Good day Bill,

I'm building the SF II but have never seen this model before. How interesting to see the internals of this vessel. I'm looking forward to watching your build.

It may have been mentioned before somewhere, but what is the difference between the San Francisco and the San Francisco II?

SF is double planked, SF2 single...although many, myself included, have double planked it anyway. The bulkhead and the bow are different as well, more fragile in the original, and reworked for SF 2.

SF 3 has also upgraded many of the metal parts for the original version, using wood now and creating a much better looking model.

You can check out mine, or many other SF2 logs, and then look at Vulcanbomber's log for the original version to see many of the differences

I've seen your work, it's very good. Lookin' forward to your Morgan work. Back in the 70's I had a chance to walk her decks. At 6'1" it was a bit cramped for me. I would not have made a good sailor.

I opened the box, took inventory. Phone rang, grandchild was involved in auto accident in Nevada. Gotta go to the states for a couple of months, won't be back till mid June.

 

On a positive note: It does give me a chance to fill my wish list while I am there. I'll have a lot to do when I get back. The shelves were almost empty.

Bill, my sincere thoughts to you and grand kid. Having grand kids far away when they are involved in an accident is not easy.

For all other that are interested, hobbylink will have the same kit available in late May at $98.79
