  1. I like your rope coiling jig. Will have to try that when i get to that point. I had tapped brads into a block of wood but it was very clumsy. I am learning that taking time to make a good jig for repetitive tasks is always a good idea.
  2. I broke a bow sprit on a model, I think it was my AL Harvey model. Glue and wrapping with heavy black thread made it look fine. An “at sea jury rig”. 🙂
  3. She continues to look better and better, John, as she nears completion. I miss working on my models. But we are in a condo in Myrtle Beach until the new house is finished. On the up side, we got our first COVID vaccinations.
  4. Love the aging on the wood. It looks like a real boat.
  5. Looking great John. I expect it will be April or May before I can get back to my Morgan. Everything is all packed up and we’ll be moving out in a couple of weeks. But in some ways it’s been nice to take a break from modeling. ron
