  1. I suggest you name her Σαλαμινία (Salaminia) or Πάραλος (Paralos). Those were two sacret athenian triremes.
  2. I would say, what a wonderful build! Congrats, you are really skilled! Amazing work! Christos
  3. To whom it may concern. Feel free to enforce the law! Hopefully there isnt a jail penalty there.
  4. Here we go again, heart deadeyes from Syren Ship Model Co shop.... great dead eyes! Standing rigging has started.
  5. Shipyard reopens, was closed down since July 20, when my grandson came to visit us.
  6. @hof00 Thank you very much for your very kind words. He is here for 3 weeks.
  7. Masting on the go, stoped shortly before my grandson came to visit us.
  8. Hi alex, Thank you for your comments. I do think of using oarsmen and ofcourse a captain and a pilot.... but what do you have inmind? Christos
  9. Very interesting gentlemen! The easiest thing to do is then: "Go safe. Dont put your build in any danger. So dont use bee wax. Go for micro-chrystalline... " After reading what I have just wrote, makes me think... I could open an advertising agency lol 😆
  10. Ok John, thank you for clarifying this to me. Its the hydrogen, carbon and oxygen bondings that are varying, the ph not. Still why some people still talk of the acidity that the bee wax may on a long time term damage the threads? That means that some times we get ph values under 7, or even slightly under 7, but still a 6.4 or even a 6.8 ph can on a long time basis damage the cotton thread I suppose. Christos
  11. @allanyed great! So I gues it can be ph7 or it can also not be. As said: "the compounds and their ratios vary from species to species,". So with the micro-chrystalline wax am on the safe side.
