I had built large Revel kits as a boy and now at 35 I see this advertisement offering a wooden ship kit. Wow maybe I could do this. When I was done I was hooked. 35 years and 9 builds latter I'm still not done. This is an addictive hobby.
This ship is sitting in the inner harbor where I live in Baltimore I love this ship and something draws me to it I cant explain maybe I was on this ship in another life or something but I cant get this one out of my head I've been on board so many times I've lost count. I wish someone other then AL made this ship I just don't think they do it justice. So I plan to scratch build this POF style I have begun the process of gathering information on it as well as hundreds of photos including areal pictures from my drone of the upper masts and rigging. You did a great job on this Brother I always like seeing this ship built by folks
