Recommended Posts

Hi again,

I unbox a new bottle of wood glue und beginn with the Greyhound build. First I build a little helling for my bulkhead framework.

Then I do the keel laying an glue some ribs like the instruction shows.

In the next step I position the false deck, but it was wider than the recess. So I cut it a little bit smaller till it fits.

So thats enough for the first day, I hope you like what you see. I am a beginner in wood building and I try my best.

Also I am not a native english speaker and my english lesson at school are long ago, so I hope you understand what I try to tell you.

 

Al the nautic technical terms I take over from the english part of the instruction, when you find wrong words, please let me know by PN.

 

Greetings Gordon
