  1. Bob, I really feel for you guys. My Son lives in Portland and it’s been really bad there too. Hopefully as you get into the winter rainy season it will clear up. All we have to deal with here are hurricanes. This year we’ve had more than we normally get but we’re about 250 miles inland so by the time they get here, it’s mostly rain with some occasional strong gusts. Now, Katrina was a whole ‘nother thing - we had many hours of constant 70+mph wind and many tornados, it was scary. Look forward to updates on your build when when you can get to it. I’m really interested in your
  2. Brian, Those lanterns are incredible! Very impressive! I am very much looking forward to seeing them lit on the finished model! Don
  3. Thanks, Bob. I’m very lucky to have a finished basement and a Wife doesn’t like stairs so She never goes down there😉. My oldest Son also did a stint as an apprentice cabinetmaker and built a desk that fits me like I wanted. It’s simple but has some good storage space and cutouts for power, etc. Thanks again, Don

  6. Bob, beautifully done! I’m about a month behind you and really enjoying your posts! Don
  7. I, too have the Artesania Latina scraper and used it on my Medway build - it worked great! Unfortunately, AL is out of business and a brief check with Ages of Sail and a couple of other sources didn’t show any in stock. Hopefully someone else will pick up on this. Don
  8. Thanks, Bob! Your Pen Duick is gorgeous - I’m deeply impressed with how you’ve painted it and finished the deck! First rate! Don
  9. Thanks, Chuck, I really appreciate it! Your design and instructions, as well as the excellent build logs and other information here, have made this doable here in the wilderness of north Alabama😸. Don
