  1. I've just made a small donation. Having started a build log today I've realised that without this site and the phenomenal resource it provides I wouldn't have been brave enough to take on the build. It's the least I can do to give a little bit towards the funding of this wonderful forum.
  2. Hello from the UK

    Thanks for the warm welcome . This does seem to be a very friendly place. I've already picked up so much useful information from reading threads on here. Well the decision is made. I'm going to build the Artesania Latina Bounty. It's a bold choice as it'll only be my second build but I'm looking forward to the challenge. It's the ship that I've always wanted to build and I gained so much experience building the King Of The Mississippi that I feel I'm ready for it. I will start a build log on here if I may as I'm sure I'm going to need some help and guidance along the way. Probably won't be for a couple of months though as I think my wife is looking to buy it for me as a Christmas present. I just need to persuade her to let me have it as an early Christmas present
  3. Hello from the UK

    Hi all, Nice to be aboard. I'm Paul from Reading in the UK. I've just completed the Artesania King Of The Mississippi which took me just over 12 months. Now considering my next build. Ultimately I want to do the HMS Bounty but I think this might be too big a leap so am considering the Mayflower first to give me more planking and rigging experience. Looking forward to chatting with you. I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions! Off to explore the site now........
