a small one..

so I have been wanting to do something with my hands (non-computer - physical world stuff) to relieve work related stress and to be something that can later fit in as a reference model for seascapes and such (google Andreas Achenbach for example).

So I looked around and found a model kit on Ebay for a pretty good deal at 90 bucks or so.

My goal is to mostly finish it during 2021 and I have been chipping away at it...

This is absolutely beautiful. What a treasure this will be! I'm glad your small friends are watching and helping, since they will have the pleasure of its adventures when it's built.

Share more as you go. It will be fun to watch you. The photos are as evocative as the boat itself. Good work. They tell a rich story.
thanks Paula, I wanted to share the fun. It isn't about photography or art yet, But it Will Be! Eventually..
IMO IT’s already about photography and arts/ and shall steadily.become more-so! Makes me recall an old fantasy of finding artifacts of a Norse settlement near the estuary of the Mullica into B-bay. What the hell; there are fables of the Norse in Minnesota and in Oklahoma... why not New Jersey. Keep you eye out for remnants of a lapstrake hull protruding from a cutback of the Mullica, Bass, or Wading Rivers!

thanks Dave - I know that there is an art to bending those boards!! And that is when they are even just 3/32 inch or about thick. I can't even begin to imagine how these things were Really built!? Yeah, bending, twisting, lapstraking and all of it..
