Recommended Posts

Some more fittings has been dunn,

pin rails are in place  (not glued yet) I used some scrapp wood for this so it stas at the same hight, 

the davits is in place, catheads are made (not install yet) and am making new belaying pins also,

for this I used some leftovers from chuck's gratings kit (boxvood ) and used dremel to turn them 

4 made ,70-80 to go LOL😲 and it small to.... ( and I used some gum back of the scrapp wood so I got my hand free when drilling etc)

i have started also to rigg the breech line for the corronadas.

i have tested the color for the sizing and i deside to use dark brown so i can get a contrast color.

Svein-Erik, your Syren is coming out very nicely! That tick remover tool is a great idea!
