The deck is finally complete. That seems like the last major constructional step. 






It turned out reasonably well. Here is my first attempt at a scarf joint: not perfect but I'm happy enough. 




Here is the capstan. I can't believe so many are taking Chuck's lead and sloshing red paint it! I guess what to me is a little masterpiece ( Chuck's contribution not mine) is the everyday to the master.


Unfortunately I dropped it at the moment of completion and broke off the central stick which may make positioning the upper section a tiny bit more tricky – but nothing serious.










I took Chuck's advice regarding painting the hull right up to the wales rather than the waterline. I think it looks much better. And I've made a start on the rudder. Shame that's got to be painted but no choice really.

Nicely Done.  The capstan looks great.  I still go back and forth about painting it.  I see you chose not to simulate the caulked seems between the deck planking.  

its really coming together.
