Hello Mike

Golly but your new Ship Yard sure does look good, with all of those new tools to work with it looks like you're about ready to tackle any task. Your HMS Bounty is coming along very nicely, and I just love all of that very fine detail that you are adding to your ship. I am also pleased that you found my Bounty build helpful, it's always nice to get another opinion apart from ones build plans, ENJOY.

Regards Lawrence

Ahoy Shipmates,
I have purchased a compression app that seems to be working.
When last I was in the workshop I had just finished the mainmast shrouds and ratlines. I moved on and started the mizenmast shrouds and ratlines.

After finishing up with the mizzenmast I went into the repair mode I re-rigged the steering mechanism as it was in need of change.

I'm still waiting for an adapter for my kerf blade so I can press on with my ladders.
Thanks for visiting my build log.

Hi Mike,
Tying ratlines does get a little boring it helps to git up and walk around every 10 or 15 minutes. Your model is looking great the new steering arrangement will make starboard turns a lot easier.

Nice looking build Mike. I built the Caldercraft Bounty a few years ago but sold it to a doctor friend. Wish I had kept it now. Perhaps I'll try the Constructo kit. Anyway, good job and I look forward to seeing it completed.

Ahoy Shipmates,
Time for another installment. On the advise of one of our shipmates I bought a kerf blade for my little saw and built ladders. I had originally planned to by pass this step but instead of covering the holes I put in ladders. How else would the crew go below?

One more to go then I will press on with the rigging.

Hi Mike, Cap'n Bligh's little boat is looking good so far. Something that has been 'bugging' me for a while is the size of the tiller arm, is it supposed to be that thick or is that just the way it turned out ? Scaled up it would be about 24 inches wide.
Just curious though. Really like your steps with railings, unfortunately Cook's dinghy doesn't have the room for them.
Regards
Eric
