This is how I made the midship beam supports,

in place between the ports, on reflection maybe I should have made them a bit smaller

view from the bow, you can see the quarter deck sub deck waiting to be planked

the beams cut to size

I have installed the beams, the gangways, the fore deck and have planked them all,
I used black acrylic paint as the caulking, I clamp approx eight planks together on there
side and then paint them, it looks a bit messy when you lay the deck but cleans up OK.

G'day Maarten, yes I've seen her a couple of times, the guy that I built her for lives approx 30 miles away from me, the copper still had it's shine and everything else looked good, I have got to get around to catching up on your Royal Caroline build, I've been busy this last week building or rather modifying our TV unit to be able to fit our new TV, a present to my Admiral and myself, catch up soon,
Best regards John,

My Admiral approx 19, long time ago, she still looks beautiful today,
Hello John, Catching up to you again, golly that is a great picture of your Admiral at 19, I bet to you that this seams like yesterday and that she is even more beautiful today. Nice work on your TV stand it sure looks great. Did all of those forest fires and the flooding come close to you, I hope not.
Regards Lawrence

Thank you Lawrence for the nice comment about my admiral, she also said thank you, yes nearly 54 years ago, but as you say seems only like yesterday, we are lucky concerning the fires as we are down in the suburbs and not up in the hills, but the temps have really been high this year, things have cooled down a little bit thankfully, I hope this finds you and your lovely Admiral in the best of health, catch up soon,

best regards John,
