  1. Amati Viking ship wood

    Friend of mind just started building this from scratch using plans purchased in Italy.
  2. sssshhhh... you aren't supposed to mention the Canuck secret weapon!
  3. Just received a pair of Carson Pro, $34 cdn., (on a recommendation from vossiewulf see link below), because having something I could use over my glasses appealed to me. Have not used them for ship work yet but they are comfortable from just trying them out.
  4. Wow! almost 29,000 members...

    make that 2
  5. "These spiders mature in late spring, and reproduce in mid-summer. One (dark fishing spider) sac was reported as containing 1393 eggs (Kaston 1948). Eventually the spider suspends her egg sac in a tangled “nursery web” amid foliage well off the ground. There she stands guard over the package and the spiderlings that later emerge from it." It's only a matter of time until your hear the sound of 11,000+ baby spider feet pattering about! You won't find the father, he gets eaten after he's done his duty.

  7. Saw this posted on Reddit, from Imgur (3.8 million views), no real owner evident. Anyone know where this comes from? Not just a good model, but sinks accurately, that's something I haven't seen before.
  8. Another new one

    Hi Daniel, welcome to the best website in the explored universe.

    Welcome aboard. Can we have your name and where you are from?
  10. We are Moving

    Lake Wabumun to Edmonton, you're going to need a nice bottle of scotch for that move!
  11. New to the forum

    Welcome to MSW Vic., please don't be shy to share your victories, trails and tribulations. The group of ship builders sharing here are very friendly and you won't find a group with more knowledge and experience anywhere else.
  12. The picture of the interior is at least twice as wide as it is high, which doesn't seem to fit with the dimensions provided...."The total area represents about 4.25" x 5.5"? Is this a real Spirit interior? Could give you the methods and estimates if it was full size interior but shrunken down to this size, have no experience with that. http://spirityachts.com/spirit-yachts/gallery/interior-gallery/
