Great that you started this building log
It is such an interesting boat and kit - I am taking the chair in the first row and would like to see all working steps
Maybe once I will try myself on this kit

It looks like a big canoe with masts and sails.
In 1812 at the Battle of Plattsburgh several 70 tons gunboats were involved, usually maned with 40 men

There is a drawing published by Howard Chapelle in his "History of the American Sailing Navy" showing such a gunboat

Hi Leroy,

If you want I can translate Amati's instructions for you.
The only thing I ask you is to have hospitality when I'll return to the US after spending a portion of my life there working for HP ...

No, I'm kidding. Don't worry I will do it absolutely free !!!

Nice project, I will follow your work!
Thanks for the offer, I will call on you if i get stuck. So far I have been able to follow along based on the drawings.
