Yes this is my first POF build after years bashing kits to death.There has been nothing that really inspired me in Ancre's catalogue previously apart from L'Ambiteaux but that was long out of print.Ironically that has been reprinted around the same time as this Monograph was released.
Do you have a line drawing of the hull? The new book of McKay is nice, but I don't agree with his lines. The stern looks awful.Sovereign of the Seas ended up a scratchbuild as nothing of the kit remains but this is my first go at POF
That was exactly my question also, in respect to proper functioning of the rudder this deep transom doesn't look right. I am currently reading his book but haven't found yet where this stern design from him is coming from.Hi Christian
Unfortuneatly I don't.I blocked the Deagostini carcass out in lime blocks and then carved it to suit what I believed to be correct at the stern.
I agree with you,I do not know where McKay got the very deep transom from.He took cues from the Tudor Carrack but the Mary Rose's transom was not that deep
