    Trying to get a model of the Bluenose together and enjoying a new grand-daughter just about pegs me out at the moment. I am not really computer literate and don't know a lot about it. Don't understand the contact method as seen. Iv'e got an E-mail and a phone but that's about it.
  1. G'day there, Zaabe here. Like the build of the Bluenose. Have one question. Can you tell me the rake angle for the two masts and is it measured from the decks or from a horizontal line eg, waterline. If this is so is the ship mounted such that the keel is parallel to the horizontal or is it set up such that the keel has a slope as it does when mounted. Hope this makes sense. Regards, Zaabe
