Hello Mike

Just catching up on your great build log on the HMS Bounty, I built a scratch version that I just completed this last spring. Sure do love that ship, such a joy to work on and such a nice size. My only regret is that I did not add a bunch of LED LIGHTS to her, they sure would look great at night as she is living in her display case.

Yes the rigging can be a bit trying, I try to take one line at a time, try to under stand what it does and how it would work on the real ship, making the whole thing much more easier.

You are doing a great job , Bounty will surely be a master piece wit hours of enjoyment doing the rigging, ENJOY.

Regards Lawrence

Hi Lawrence and Janos,
Thank you both for visiting my build log and for your kind comments.
Lawrence, I must admit I have visited your build log of Bounty for ideas and to clarify some of the things I was unsure of.
I am going to take a break and try to do some modification to my workshop. I am going to build some shelves to try and organize thing some. I hope to be back in the ship yard soon.

Hi Mike

Just checking in to see if you were back at work in your Old Ship Yard, but alas it looks like I am just a bit too early, ENJOY.

Ahoy Ship Mates,
Shukran ya Mustafa for visiting my build log ahlan wasahlan and shukran jazira for your kind words. I don't get a chance to practice my Arabic any more. (15 years in Saudi Arabia I only learned a little speaking, but no writing.)
Back from my sabbatical and at the ship yard crackin the whip again. My ship yard is so small I have to go outside to change my mind.
I built a workbench to put some of my tools on and cleaned off my bench to get back to rigging.

I finished the main mast shrouds and built the ladders to go below.

I should have built those ladders and installed them much earlier in the build, but I wasn't sure I was going to include them.

Mike

Great inclusion in your workshop. Correction "Shipyard".

Those tools will help you to build.

Keep the photos coming on your excellent build.

Cheers
Geoff

Ahoy shipmates,
Back in the ship yard with the mainmast shrouds set the ratlines are next. Tying the ratline is tedious work so I must watch myself from being to impatient. I have allot of experience with clove hitches and can tie them rather quickly.

I was unhappy with the way the ladders and ladder wells turned out and have decided to re-do the ladder wells and make my own ladders. Thanks to our Shipmate canoe21 "Lawrence" I am making a jig cut ladder rails. This sub=project requires a kerf and I am waiting for it in the mail.
While waiting for tools I am making the bilge pumps. This gives me an opportunity to use some of my new cutting tools.
