Nice to see you again here Kar I have been wondering about your absence. About your BUILD the is ABSOLUTELY nothing to complain. a through MASTERWORK. I do not know your Tool Room and tools being used, but I have something in my mind, that you are like me: As little of the professional tools. It can be seen, that you are a Wood lover and know how to use it in your favour. When I was a Boy and young, on my mother side they were all Fishermen's and sailors, where on my after side Carpenter- my father and brother- with a big carpenters tool room. your work reminds mi on my youth

Use of a model: with this dramatic foto-shop-scenery the danish journal "Historie" illustrated the stranding of the "Printz Friderich" when her wreck was found in 2018.
(She ran aground in these minutes 240 years ago near the danish island Laesoe / Kattegat, 28th of September 11.00 p.m. Central European Time. 7 lives lost, round about 570 saved within the next days, the crew generated 8 additional babies the Laesoe priest remarked)
BTW: I am not sure whether this ist the right thread for my post, please excuse if so.L1070016.JPG

. . . the crew generated 8 additional babies the Laesoe priest remarked . . .

One really attractive thing about stranding at islands like Læsø: All the men are at sea most of the time so all females, married or not, are easy prey ;)
Though, according to the church book, only 4 bastard offspring was baptized 9-15 months after the stranding. But of course the sailors may have produced also quite a few legitimate children in addition. And who knows if a husband or two have decided to acknowledge paternity even if they were far away from home at the time of conception Speechless. Læsø is a rather small island (today less than 1800 inhabitants). Imagine that womenfolk all over the island had to house more than 500 virile sailors :cool:.
