  1. Thanks Kevin, We have no Covid-19 😄 And you and the Admiral? Sjors
  2. Thanks for the likes. Deck is planked and have the first coat of Danish oil. Bulwarks are painted in the colors by Mike_H 🙂 Make the waterline and place also a plank so I know where I can put the copperplates. Sjors
  3. Go on Mike 🙂 Great example for me. I also make a copy of that yellow and black on the bulwarks.( if you don't mind ) Just love it! Sjors
  4. Hi Mike, I indeed mean the waterline batten. You see that you know what I mean? And yes,I know a few languages, English, German ,French and Dutch ( of course) And Delft is not that far away. I've bin there hundreds of times. When I was working for Connexxion (bus company) I was working in Delft. So I think you know the city lines 60,61,62,64. I have drive them all for 6 years form 2002 till 2008. And next time when you are riding your bike and passing Bleiswijk, ring the bell and there will be coffee 🙂 Sjors
  5. Mike, What a great job you are doing! That coppering looks fantastic. I hope I can do it the same. What are you using to separate the paint with the copperplates? Sjors
  6. Thanks Mike, I will slow down 🙂 At the moment I can take a look with wat you are doing en make a copy of that . So please hurry !!!! 😄
  7. And a little update again..... Thank for the likes and the visiting. Second planking done and after a few hours of sanding I'm happy how she is. It is so smooth the I can not trust my fingers 🙂 On the picture it looks otherwise but that's the light I believe. I have now a good underground for the paint nd the copper plaates. But first the inner bulwark and deck planking. Sjors
  8. Thanks for the likes and everyone who is visiting from time to time. Ratlines are done! I can not see any ratline for a while now..... I don't count them but there are a lot. Pictures are a little bit bad because she is to big to get het in one shot.... Sjors
  9. After a few weeks of planking and a little bit more sanding the hull is smooth! A smooth substrate for the second planking. That will start in a few days.... For now pictures. I don't make any stealers or drop planks because you don't see a thing about it! Just the easy way 🙂 Sjors
  10. Hi Mick, The Nuestra don't give me much problems but I have to finish it for my wife. And it is always a little difficult to go further on something that is done for a big part. I'll be making ratlines on that one. but almost finished. Sjors
