Thanks for the kind words and positive comments,  and also for the LIKES.


The next equipment parts of the French corvette is a cover for spare masts and spare spars. The weatherproof cover is a canvas, which was painted with tar. This canvas is mounted on fork-shaped iron and been completed front and back by a board.

The following pictures speak for themselves and I hope you like them.

Super Arbeit, Johann, bin echt begeistert!


And you probably already know this painting, but I think it´s worth showing:



Épisode de l'expédition du Mexique en 1838 by Horace Vernet. It shows the Prince of Joinville on the poop of La Créole, listening to the reports of the vessel´s Lieutenant, Penaud and sees the explosion of the tower of the Fort of Saint-Jean d'Ulloa on 27 November 1838.


By the way, do we know anything about the sailing qualities of La Créole?

Thank you all!

The report for the construction of the French Corvette goes on as follows:

With the production of the cover for the hammocks I had begun some time ago. First, I made the Hammocks cranes.
See here LINK !

In the further progress I make the wooden mold, which was then coated with the canvas of fine fabrics.


Please Look at the pictures:
