I wanted to work on skills for a square rigged SIB, which I think is more of a challenge than fore & aft rigged. The story of the Jeroboam in Moby Dick was one I liked, with weird ship qurantines and doomy prophecies. I also like building fictional ships in bottles; as if i've captured part of the mystery. I found no illustration of the actual fictional Jeroboam, so I looked for Nantucket or New England Whaling ships from the first half pf the 19 the century. This painting by Salvatore Colacicco really caught my eye, and I used it as my muse!
