I've heard of skimping on the cost of a build but this ship is gonna draw water from both ends. It'll go down faster then the Wasa :D

BTW, Love your Wasa.Ive seen her built with different colours but really love that lighter blue you used.

 

Seriously, I love these cut-aways. Have you considered adding more detail to the lower decks, i.e. barrels, ballast rock...

Looking at the side view you really get an idea of how cramped that second deck is, Look 5' something. Going to sea would suck for 6'2'' people like me.

Thanks Keith.   It was tight in there, no doubt.  My Licorne is even tighter... 4 foot from deck to deck on the berth deck.  3 foot if add in the beams. 

 

As for finishing it.. it's done.  I gave it to my late father-in-law at this point in the construction and he had it about a year and half, maybe a bit more.  After he passed, the Trition came home and I decided leave it as is.

Sorry to here of your loss, and completely understand.

Something's have more value because of sentiment. I recently bought the Midwest Dinghy to build for my Mom-in-law. Its always been kinda a term of endearment between us. I was wanting to gold leaf her name on the transom.

 

Wow 3 ft under the beams, was it run by Hobbits, sheesh at 6'2", Id have to crawl.

Thank you for the kind words, Aldo and Paddy.  It really was a fun project.  So much fun, I'm thinking of doing another one at some point.

Mark,

Very nice.

Do the plans supplied include everything shown in your final picture, i.e., decking, posts, cannon, etc.?

 

Thanks

Beautiful work, I love the look of the cannon, mine always look like they came out of a crackerjack box:)
