  1. Unboxing day: For my second kit model, I chose the Revenue Cutter by Bluejacket Shipcrafters. Was really happy with the Spray model I chose prior, so I wanted to follow it up with something slightly more complex rigging-wise. No building today, just taking in the kit: Excited about this one!
  2. Tom - fantastic idea on the wire to give the sails some shape. I think that is a clean-looking method, and certainly easier than my "gluey slurry and shaped plywood" method. I may have to try this way for the next one. Good work as always, and Happy Holidays!

As inspiring now, as it must have been then. I am currently reading the hard copy of "The Hard Way Around," and have "Sailing Alone" streaming audio from the Librivox archive (a good free resource for those who would like to listen to the story).
  7. Completed by Josh Williamson. Kit model by Bluejacket Shipcrafters, Inc. Model started on 9/24/20 and completed 11/24/20.
