  1. I finished assembling frames 6 7 and most of frame 8 in the meantime I assembled the jig, I then tried to assemble the keel parts, but found a production error, the parts are milled from both sides, and the two sides weren't correctly aligned. It is possible to sand this down flat, but then the height of resulting keel part is too small. So I told Tom, and he right away sent a new part (Now this I call great customer service!) With the new keel I now started dry fitting the frames in jig.
  2. ... actually that would be more like 13 years, I still have the original welcome mail from MSW 1, but better late than never!
  3. So it seems, you finally managed to lure me out of my hiding on the lower deck, and get me to start a build log... While I have the CAF Enterprise waiting to be built, I think the Granado, might be a smaller "test case". I started assembling the first frame, and already have a first question, on the lower timbers there are bevelling marks in the joint area. James writes, that the joints should be perpendicular to the frames, so it is safe to ignore these marks? Jan
