  1. Model Shipway Ratline tool

    Thanks so much for taking the time to review this product. Richard.
  2. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Julie, I can't possibly "like" that. I'll just say "ouch!" Stay safe. Richard.
  3. What have you received today?

    EBay were kind enough to send me a $10 off coupon. Unusually for these kind of offers, I only needed to spend $20. So I spent $25.70 and got another book: It is not large but is full of information, including notes and plenty of pictures of contemporary models and drawings. This was brand new with free shipping (arrived in 3 days!). Richard
  4. Wood Project Source?

    I placed a very small order for some Alaskan Yellow Cedar on Dec 14th and it arrived Dec 30th. This was enough for my immediate needs (which at my pace is about 6 months worth!). The single sheet was 0.025 x 3 in + some strips. Quality is excellent. The sheet was a little longer than the 24" specified and they included a few extra strips. I've not used this wood before but it is very nice. I will definitely order from them again (I just wish my budget was big enough for "a dozen of everything"). Richard.
  5. Received my copy yesterday. A 1976 edition (probably a little less accurate!). I only hope the author's already been paid, less than $5 (including shipping!) for a 970 page hard-bound book is not going to make anyone rich. Thanks for the recommendation. Richard

    At least you got the whole mouse. The cat we had when I was a kid usually only gave us half the mouse (or bird).

    Try the book by John Mckay in the Anatomy of the Ship series. You should be able to get a good second-hand copy for around $50. The ISBN-13 number is 9780851778945. All the best, Richard.
