You can never have enough books, and this should be a great companion for your BN build! Enjoy, Peter.
In the early development the material and lines for Pinkys gives more understanding to the Pinky that Ohla built and we can see. The amount and detail that Chapelle gathered is staggering. RichYou can never have enough books, and this should be a great companion for your BN build! Enjoy, Peter.
The pages toward the end of the historical development and scantlings related to Bluenose, her design and construction compared with other schooners are interesting with our own work now. The plethora of details is so large that I have a hard time keeping them in mind as related to any particular area of the fittings that I am working on now and the problems of too much soldering heat releasing other soldered parts on the same spar band. I may have to give that up and drill into the spar through a hole in the brass band and set the eyes with adhesive into the wood, faking the fitting itself. Happy reading.. Rich
