From a film I just saw on youtube, it seems that Pen Duick had 2 different topsails: the one that is featured which definitely looks best,but obviously could only be used with very light breezes and was certainly a pain to hoist, the other one has a much moe classic look, but would also be too much from wind force 3-4.

Thank you.  This model was built a long time ago.  As it was, I think, my first plank on bulkhead build, I followed the instructions and used provided nails to fix the first planking: my first and final attempt to use nails on a hull (that had to be sanded afterwards) other than decorative.


By the way, Artesania used to have a larger model of Pen Duick in their catalogue, but this has presumably been reserved for the French market.


You would never believe it, but I restarted my building of  the Dutch flute, which I had given up some 6 or 7 years ago.  Not an easy planking job, as you may be aware, but I managed it and am now finishing the hull (rudder, chain plates, decoration), all items that have been either replaced or deeply modified from the original kit.


Good luck with your project(s)
