 I guess the sooner I restart my  Sultana the better. Once we were quite a fleet but now rhere are none left.  In scanning through photos this one came to hand. It shows the hull with spars temporarily pinned in place .

 and is as good aplace as any to begin.

Rigging is not as difficult as you imagine. You will do just fine.

Hi Kip,

 

Welcome home. Glad to see you are posting again. Your Sultana is very nice indeed. Was glad to view it when we visted together on Vancover Island last year.

 

Keep on, my friend!

 

BFN,

 

Cheers,

Hopeful aka David

Kip, good to see you back and posting again.  I was wondering just the other day how your Sultana was fairing.  Glad to see you are paying attention to her again and restarting the log.  It's more than I can say for myself.  I still have all the pics of Bluenose on my desktop, I just haven't found the time to do it.  The long(er) evenings are here and I have sooo many outdoor projects that demand my time, i doubt Bluenose will get the devoted attention she did when I first started on her back in Novemeber.  I am working on the chaniplates now and the masts and booms are done.  i will begin rigging soon.

 

Well, good luck to you and I will try to drop you a line when I get a chance.  My wife and I are still planning a trip to Victoria (someday) and I hope to come up to meet you.

 

Rob

 It has been over a year since I have worked on my  Sultana. My  hand tremor  which had become progressively worse  over the years had reached the point where I broke more than I made. Lack of  a steady hand and manual dexterity  limited  my abilities and activities.    I chose to abandon my prescription medication since it did not eliminate my tremor and affected my reaction time  and I could not give up driving. Ship modelling became a spectator  activity. I still enjoyed  visiting   MSW, reading and meeting with my good ship modeling buddies here on the island. 

   My dear wife had been taking magnesium  to alleviate  her night time leg cramps.  On Christmas Eve while reading articles on the importance of   Magnesium in our diet she discovered an article which  described dramatic improvements  for people suffering with the inherited condition "essential tremor" . The improvement had been brought about by a daily dose of 500mg. I began taking magnesium supplement there and then Ten days later my tremor has not entirely  disappeared but  my hands , especially the right are steadier than they have been in many years. As my Admiral says I can now eat soup in public!!!  The other day I sat at my bench and tried theading blocks and tying knots using tweezers. I met with repeated success.   I feel I can return to working  on my Sultana and Old Blue.

  I would not normally share  personal medical  information over the internet but   hope that in doing so that any other crewmember suffering with  the same affliction will  benefit from my experience.

 Best Christmas present I ever received.

 Once more I am enjoying the journey and not just watching from the sidelines.

Kip (aka Sawdust)

Kip...It is good to see that you have found relief from the tremors. I'm sure there are many here who can use your suggestion to relive some of their symptoms as well. Thanks for sharing and we look forward to seeing some new progress on the Sultana!

Hi Kip,

 

First of all - Happy New Year!

 

I was very glad to hear that you have found relief from your tremor and can get back to a hobby you get so much enjoyment from. All the best with the rest of your build!
