Hi Mike, are you remembering to wax your lines? As you may know it helps keep the "rope" stiff, is easier to work with and prolongs the life of the thread.
This was not to teach you how to suck eggs but more for the benefit of learners reading the post.
Regards
Eric

PS. sitting here typing I am looking at my Endeavour with yearning! BUT I have to get my studies out of the way first, I am in the throws of coding a web based program and the other week the terminal I was using at college decided to have a spat and in the process wiped out (literally) a very large chunk of code off my removable hard drive (it was reading from the drive at the time) I now have to start from scratch :angry-cussingblack: :angry-cussingblack: :angry-banghead: :angry-banghead:

Hi Greg,
Thanks for visiting my build log and for your kind comments. I have seen all three versions of Mutiny on the Bounty, and I only did a cursory research on HMS Bounty through Wikipedia. The club members from down under have been filling me in a little here and there. Unlike many of our colleagues in this club I am an extreme novice ship builder. I love old sailing ships I to sail and I love this hobby. :handgestures-thumbup:

G'day Mike
With all of those ships under your belt, I would class you way above a novice buider. More like an experienced one.

Ahoy Ship Mates,
First off thanks Greg for you kind words, and for visiting my build log.
I'm back crackin thee whip in my ship yard. I have finished the shrouds aand ratline on the foremast and have moved on to the mainmast. I always go back to re-visit Donnie's video on rigging shrouds when I get to this part.
