Yes, this absence of straight lines for reference would be a real challenge for a cartesian mind and hand like mine ... quite strange actually in a country that was dominated by rational thinking and calvinist religion.

But a square hull would never do :)

Although: most working ships tend to be rather box-like: the main frame of a tjalk, fluit or aak, all tend to be rather square.

and it is a mis-conception that dutch calvinists did not like beautifull (and expensive) stuff. Quite a lot of expensive houses around.....

Very difficult part executed perfectly. Really excellent work.

The impression I get is among this community of builders, wood bending is the standard by which skill is measured, so he who can do more bends and more difficult bends than the other guy, wins. So we have parts like the cabin roof bent into multiple smooth curves for no functional reason, and a hull shape that is closing in on being a circle :)

it seems for some most of life is defined as a contest, others just like pleasing lines ... a certain flow. I particularly like the cabin's roof as it breaks the rigid lines of the caulked planks
