The break I wrote about was a bit longer than expected. LOL. I have been working on the Confederacy, just slowly. I did treenail the hull, which took some time. I then moved onto the stern and quarter galleries, which proceeded with several stops and starts. Of course I broke the cove over the stern lights. Also, for some reason, I just couldn't get the molding to look good on the quarter galleries. I had to redo the molding a couple times. The stern decorations took some time to get to line up correctly, but once done, things looked good. The rudder went quickly and looks good. I completed the rest of hull details before moving on to planking the bulwarks.

 

I did sand the bulwarks down before working on the stern section. The planking was relatively easy, but things are tight in the captain's cabin and I think it would have been easier to plank before closing in the stern. The last thing I have done was install the margin planks and the checkerboard floor.

 

Some pictures on how things look now on the build. Looking at the pics, I did notice some clean up needed on a piece of molding in the stern area that has some paint on it.
