While I was waiting for paint and glue to dry on my recently completed Swift build I decided to start on my next project, the Rainbow. It seems most folks have built the Endeavour which was the UK’s challenger to the America’s Cup in 1934. Endeavour had great success in the UK but ended up losing to Rainbow in 1934 4-2. A few years ago an updated version of the Rainbow was built using the original plans but with current materials and technology. It races against other rebuilt J Class ships which I think is pretty cool. I was looking for a little change in ship and have the Bluenose up next so I thought the Rainbow was a good warm up. I was not good at taking pics of the early stages of the build but will keep better record of the build going forward. I just finished the second planking and have been working on the mast and boom this week with a couple of days off for Thanksgiving coming up.
