Hello all, I’m Larry and I just joined a few days ago.  Wish I had done it long ago, but the best intentions... I’m working on my third model - 1 Cape Cod Catboat from Bluejacket, 2 Bounty Launch from Model Shipways, and 3 Glad Tidings from Model Shipways.  I’m hoping to find some good tips when I get stumped by some detail in the building.  Can anyone tell me how to start a log for my current ship? Looking forward to meeting you all.

Welcome to the forum Larry. You will find lots of support here. I see you built the Cape Cod Catboat. I completed that one last year although I'm going to re-rig it next year sometime.
