Only parts not glued right now are the 3 dowels for the masts and the beak. The beak is the part sticking out from the bow under the dowel.

Added the next deck to the ship at the forward end. Still need to add the rest of deck supports and balsa, (for the centre of the deck supports as they are far to flexible).

Added two more blocks of balsa to the hull, only I left them full width by mistake. Oh well, I will just add full width ones the other side to balance things up.

Looks like you're progressing very nicely, well done....Cool Cool .. Am surprised you haven't secured the keel into a build jig, something I would always recommend on any ship build....

Regards

Alan
