This is my forth build, after completing my last build the 18th Century Longboat by shipways this should be easier for me. Although I did learn a tremendous amount through my failures and successes on that build.

A very good start of your building log of your model - hope to often an update of your progress...
BTW: you can chose without any problem "full image" which will show your photos in full size. (I edited already the first post)

With the holidays its been a while since I've posted my progress on the Sharpie Schooner. After the deck was attached I then did the cabin and cargo hatches.20201120_120531.jpg

I then proceeded to install the keel strips and chine strips. I was a bit confused as to how much to bevel the bow end of theses strips as later in the instructions the stem was to be attached after the sheet planking was installed. After the side planks and bottom planks were attached I then realized I didn't fair them correctly. I did not think to take a photo of how much the fairing was off when attaching the Stem.20201125_154828.jpg20201125_154846.jpg20201205_194621.jpg20201123_154040.jpg

Making of the toe rail was interesting. The instructions said to cut a piece of scrap basswood 3"X3/32" glue 220 grit sandpaper to it then lay the toe rail wood between to pieces of wood and sand the notches at the appropriate locations. (Going to file this technic away in my brain for future builds.)20201214_191242.jpg

I found that method very easy and accurate way to make the scuppers in toe rail.
