  1. Druxey, That's what I'm thinking. It exposes the frames to wear but I expect the bulwark frames were abutted to the top futtocks and were replaceable. Dowmer, there is no other info. about the boat than the Chapelle drawing and commentary in the National Watercraft Collection. Maury
  2. Back to the shipyard after a vacation. Attached is a photo of a portion of Chapelle's original drawing showing a "Scupper Strake" just above the wale. Does this mean that there is a continuous opening in the bulwarks or that scupper holes were placed as needed in that strake? All evidence I've gathered indicates these were "wet boats". Getting water off the deck would have been important. Appreciate any comments. Maury
  3. Whiskey strake is in. Counter is planked. I'll finish the transom before reattaching to the building board for the interior. Rubber band is to protect the stem. Maury
  4. And such a clean shop. OK, OK, OK, I'll clean up mine this weekend. Maury
  5. Starboard Planking is done. I'll finish the port side, leaving a portion unplanked. Three strakes to go, then some sanding and touchup. Maury
  6. Ed, So where is it going to be displayed when finished? A new room added to the house? Maury
  7. Getting near the end of the outer planking...The remaining starboard drop plank(s) have been spiled but not yet bent. They were shaped and fit but not glued in place 'til everything lines up properly. Maury
  8. Ed, It looks like you've got a good system laid out and that's what any captain would do with the running rigging. Maury
  9. Planking continues. Using the sacrificial bass wood for spiling patterns has really simplified the process. It's really nothing like using card for patterns. Being able to sand to a tight tolerance on the pattern makes a huge difference. You can see the un-planked window on the port side developing. Maury
  10. Heads up! For all you Bench bashers...Current Harbor Freight catalog has the 60" work bench on sale for $119.99. (I think you need the coupon). (I have no connection to HF) Maury

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
