Its been a while since we messaged, hope all is well and you decided to continue with building ships, if I remember the Vic was to be your last. Talking of Victory, hows the library piece bearing up to the riggers of life on display. Hats off that you completed it so soon really, I have long breaks as time doing other life jobs gets in the way, not to mention interest wavers, starting back up after a break has it inherent problems to. I have spent a very long time learning to handle a sewing machine, making new sails As the kits provided were short of the amount she actually wore. Enough now, I hope all is well with you and your family, take care
Hey Paul, We have been quite busy here. My wife's mother recently passed away, so we have had to go back and forth to St. Thomas VI for estate issues since she lived down there. No, I have hung up my needle and thread as well as my hull planking crimping pliers. The Victory is holding up nicely at the Library. I try to get down there every so often just to see how she is doing. I like to sit back for a bit and watch as people walk by the Vic and hear some of the comments from "WOW, beautiful, to not bad, but I don't know if I would have done it that way rather then another way" "Or I can't believe someone would have spent that much time building it to donate it, he must have been some crazy senile old coot".
I finished the Montane's last year, which is when eye sight and arthritis has started settling in on me.
I hope you and family are doing well,
