Thanks for the reply Lawrence, there is a lot of inspiring and educational work you are showing, there is a lot to learn in your build log since I am going to build my Rattlesnake the same way you do.

Hello Ship Mates
The little fellows and I have spent the week sawing out Grating strips out of Cherry wood. Fitting all of these strips together and giving them a watered down bath of white glue to hold them together. Cutting these 4 upper deck Gratings to size and building the Coamings to hold them a bit above the deck level and then fitting them to there proper hatches. This AM we have given them 2 coats of Satin Varnish and now we will be able to install them. We have also refitted the Main Jeer Bitts to fit around the Aft. Hatch, ENJOY.
Regards Lawrence

Hello Ship Mates
IMG_5518.JPG Just a little update this afternoon as the little fellows and I have installed the too Hooks and 2 Eyebolts on the two Riding Bitts and the Bitt-Cross Piece. This was done on the real ship as to enable the crew to replace a broken Bitt Cross Piece and also it could be removed and stowed on deck to give a little more room around the Stove at sea, ENJOY

Very good gratings, Lawrence and excellent extra details to the cross-bits! Just out of curiosity, will you blacken the eye-bolts and hooks?
Hello Jim, I thank you very much for your very kind words and comments. I suppose that I should blacken the hooks and
eyebolts but I think that I will leave them in the brass colour, just for a bit of caterer, ENJOY

Hello Ship Mates
The little fellows and I have added the imitation Treenails to the MainIMG_5519.JPGIMG_5520.JPG Deck just to take away a bit of the planeness. We almost used the real treenails but were afraid of cutting all of those Led Lamp wires just below this deck so to be on the safe side we did it this way. We also added a Scuttle Hatch to make access to the Bread Room, ENJOY.
Regards Lawrence

Hello Knut, Yes this the same building jig, the difference is I printed the picture of the jig from my plans and then glued it onto the jig. I figured it was much easier to do it this way rather than wright all of those # on it by hand with little room for errors, ENJOY.
Regards Lawrence
