Looking good Smiley, but don't let the OH see that you know how to use pegs or she'll have you hanging washing out.  :}   U2

Thank you for the kind words Unsinkable . . . . I'm a dreadful pegger-upper with a full compliment so if you saw how I hung my washing with the remaining few I have you'd be a little taken aback . .

Smiley, are you going to sail her or is she going to be static? I'm sure you said but 9 pages is a lot to check. U2

Even though built of lime and walnut she weighs in in ounces so she'd just fall over . . .  and I'm not even sure if the glue is waterproof so I'd end up the a new kit comprising 5000 little parts . . .  hoo hoo !

Praps I should buy it and try to do a better job . . .  hoo hoo.

Still rigging . . . 60 blocks and just 3 sails . . . wonderfully fiddly :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

A brilliant job so far Jon.
It will take pride of place in your home
as an object of much admiration by all
who see her and you will have the satisfaction
of knowing you have done the job.
