Nice, very nice, oh did I say nice! Woody Joe Kits. They are at the top of the food chain as I see. Pricey yes, but when you open that box, see the quality and that smell from the wood, oh Mommy. Will watch with interest. Ebony, bend and planking hull? You be a brave man. I assume, and we all know what that means? You are painting with wood. I love Pear, Box and Apple wood. Have only debated ebony once and after reading up on, well I was not confident enough to try. As for Woody Joe, love’em.
PS…..your subject matter makes for a most beautiful ship.
