Nice. One of my favorite working boats. Many, many years ago I built what if I remember correctly was a Mid West version and radio controlled it. Needless to say after years of abuse, I retired the ole gal. I have looked at this kit numerous time and have to admit, yours turned out swell. Thanks for shairing.
You're doing a great job, Pathfinder. Photos of actual boats in use are great, but there are huge variations in design. I have a photo of a "left-handed" lobster boat; it has the hoist pulley on the port side along with the wheel and all the controls. Apparently built by (or for) a left-handed lobster man.
Your kit is looking great! There is no end to possible stumbling blocks, but your careful attention and determination will prevail.
