  1. Finland checking in

    I believe the answer is "it depends". No it wouldn't include the bowsprit. But... different countries and even sometimes varied from shipyard to shipyard on where the measurement was actually taken from.
  2. Jim, It happens on all but IPS default. Very strange.
  3. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Sam, I want one but only if the laser weapons actually work.
  4. Frankie, As near as I can tell, the furniture would have went below. The problem is that many times (usually?), the rigging was targeted to kill a ship's movement and maneuvering. Also, sending it up would have put it in the way of the crew working aloft. I suppose that sending them up the mast could have happened but I don't think it's likely.
  5. It seems that on shorter posts, the left part of the screen is cobbled... see attached pic. Is this just me or are others seeing it? I'm using Chrome.

    Hi Hal, Welcome to MSW. By all means give some thought to a build log so you can help and advice and we can follow along.

    Lou, It's a special food from the vet, Purina EN. Do check with the vet on it as it might be the ticket for her. Ours does what yours does with her kibbles.. just drops a few on the floor and then savors each one. Sometimes she'll toss one across the room and the find it and eat it. She treats her dog biscuits the same way... but the veggies, ti's scarf city.
  8. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Nah... she's not really. Pretty much low maintenance as dogs go. Loves to be held and get tummy rubs. Loves her snacks and kibbles. Owns the house and all who either live here or come in (well.... not everyone but she seems to be a good judge of character).
  9. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    She's 5 years old. Was the runt of the litter and some physical problems with hips and what she can eat. Has to eat special kibbles, no meat or bones, but all the raw carrots, snap peas, and green beans she wants, which is everyday.
  10. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Our late cockapoo was one who hated baths but our Yorkie loves them. I think it's not so much the bath but the drying and brushing out. Then again, at only weighing in at 5 pounds, she might just figure resistance is futile.

    Do they make a version of Prozac for cats?
  12. Could this have been something experimental? There's a couple ship plans I've seen that had oddities that were outside the norm. The French ship I'm building has a couple of non-standard items (masts/yard dimensions and stove placement) so it's possible the Brits did that also.

    Pickles looks right at home, Keith. Nice that he takes an interest in what you're doing as well as wanting to hang out with you. If I had the room on my work bench, I'm sure our dog would soon own it. She insists on being put on it for a few minutes each day to check the progress of the build.
  14. As I recall with my Wasa from Billings, it was cut outside the line and then finesse them into position. Time consuming but it made for perfect fits.
