Happy birthday, Oleg!
Man, that rigging is really coming together nicely. I'm still working on getting a simple length of serving to look right, but these served strops really impressed me. What are you using for serving? And what kind of line do you use?
Oleg, thank you for sharing your build, fantastic workmanship and a great eye for detail.
As a Paul, from Scotland and with my father and grandfather telling me from a very young age that JPJ was a relation of ours, black sheep of the family was how he was described! How true that is I do not know.
My family have had a long history with the sea, uncle was a marine architect, father was a pattern maker both in Denny's Shipyard, my brother a Radio officer and I started out as a marine Radar Tech with Decca Radar.
I really do appreciate seeing your Bonhomme Richard, your model is really beautiful and I am loving her lines.
