Hello Jeff. The model as she now looks finished. I think if you want to add not even for improvements, for completeness, You can try to rig the boat, You have already built mast, the next step to add spars and stays, or even a sail... How about that?

Will do Jim, thanks. Yes looking into it now, hopefully it will not take too much longer to complete the build. I am looking forward to building the la Toulonnaise from 1823.

Hello everyone,

As you can see, I have opted to modify this build to a 2-masted sliding gunter rig, one of the three different rigs used for this boat. What with my new job, building a rope-walk and redesigning of my workbench, sadly I haven't put much time into the build to date. But on the move again to some degree, building new masts. I wasn't satisfied with the kit sails sooo... consequently one thing led to another as usual, and consequently I decided to make my own sails, and consequently rope making, and consequently modifying the rig style of the vessel to be historically accurate, trying to use the kit sails if I could. Having just tried to make rope today, I was dissapointed at my results, so a lot of practice for me ahead.

All the best during these difficult days to one and all.

Hello again, hope you are all doing well. Made rope, blocks, eyebolts, learnt about knots and rigging, all interesting knowledge. Now I want a real boat and or a yacht :) and join a club and learn sailing, sooner rather than later :cool:. Well, finally got to raise and set the masts and install the standing rigging.
