That's awesome, how many hours do you think you have in it?

Thanks for the positive vibes. This particular ship took about 500 hours to complete: about half of that in the tying of rigging knotts. I've now switched to using on brass rods for rigging, which you can see on other ships I have put on the website. This process goes much faster and allows for copper sails, resulting in a more "artistic" piece with less time on technical matters.

Yes, a true labor of love it is. This particular ship went to my son. Each of my kids, and my sister/brother, have gotten such ships. To make a story short, it took love for a woman to get me to return to ship bulding in the 1990s after years of doing other things...she simply asked for a "pirate ship", and the rest is history. We did not ultimately get together, but I've now made many ships for the new "fleet." The original fleet was largely lost to fire during the 1980s. Now the fleet is scattered around to prevent another lost like that of the 1980s fire.

Thanks again for your thoughts. This is one of my "masterpieces" for sure. But too much time was spent on the technical aspects of nylon rigging (thousands of knotts). I now only use brass rod rigging which is faster, more "artistic", and allows for copper sails.
