Well, maybe I was just lucky.!
Ordered mine same time frame. Sergey shipped two separate packages. First arrived in about 6 weeks. Second arrived about a week later.

USPS is screwed up though.. I signed up for Informed Delivery..... It worked fine for about one week. NOTHING since then...just squat.!!
Now with the current news, who knows.??

It Came! 8 weeks and 2 days. Aged wood.

The mail carrier was looking it over pretty good when she dropped it off.

Package in good shape.

When I placed the order I told him I didn't need the building base board or the ply for the station molds, to just leave them out and toss in some exrea sticks.

So, I got 10 extra 3/32" square (planking), 18 extra 1/8" X 1/32" (ribs inside keel), and 4 extra 1/4" X 1/32" (Keel & gunwales).

NICE. Looks very good. Very clean and accurate machining.

I'll be interested in seeing how this wood "works". Nice color, similar to the cherry.

After 5 weeks in the custom office here in Austria I finally got my timber - two sets from @bibigon - now I need some spare time to start also with the build....
View attachment 176271Well packed and high quality wood - Once more thank you for the service

Sure was well packed. And the quality of the wood is very high indeed. And cut to very close tolerance...
All together with the service.... very impressive.

Looking like a build will start shortly, and you will just have another project in works, like many of us.
When you start you can be assured of a short project without a lot of rigging, sails, and guns to draw things out. Have a keel laying party! Rich
