  1. I might match his speed, but he's way ahead when craftsmanship is included as well. I have a bunch of different hobbies that I switch between. Any skills that I build up are lost again when I put aside a hobby for a while. I'm sure I'll still be building boats when Chris releases the Duchess of Kingston. I'll try to raise my quality of build a little on that one.
  2. Got the cannons placed with the breech rope. That's all I'm going to do for the cannon rigging. I was going for rigging sort of like this cannon.
  3. This is what I did. My wales took up most of the space and the boom crutch parts 128 tied into the wales so I left it at that. I just build for fun and I'm not worried about getting things perfect, so obviously keep that in mind with anything I say or do. 😃
  4. I omitted that detail because my wales took up most of that space and the boom crutch parts 128 seemed to tie into the wales enough for my tastes. I'll go check your log and comment if it seems like it would be helpful to do so.
  5. I wish I had the patience to go slow and shoot for perfection, but I'd go insane if I tried as I lack the tools and skills for that. Maybe one day. I did take yesterday off from boat building and did some work around the house to keep my wife from handing me divorce papers. 😃
  6. More progress. Starting to become more fun with the planking out of the way.
  7. Thank you. It's easy to move along quickly when you're not concerned with obtaining perfection. I agree about the pear, I really like it.
  8. I can see how "very unhealthy" would be difficult to celebrate. My house burned down in the 2017 Tubbs fire, anything short of my current house burning down is pretty easy for me to stomach.
  9. I have finished planking the lower part of the hull and now I'm working on the inside bulwark. I have not done any sanding so the hull planking looks pretty rough at the moment. Also I am in northern California and our power is shut off because of windy weather so I had to take the picture with a flash.
