You and 'the little fellow' are amazing mate.

Hello Joseph H

Welcome to my build log on the little ship the Golden Hind. I am always pleased to have a new crew member on board. Your words and comments are always welcome here. Please pull up a chair and join in the fun of building this little ship. Please stop by very often as you will find that the door to the Old Ship Yard is never closed.

I believe that the Galleon's are not that much different or difficult to build than any other ship before the 1900ths.. Oh there are a few planks that are a bit trying but by soaking your wood for hours then pre bending it, I like to bend right on the hull. Except for a few of the sharper bends thin I try to find a radius as close as possible to match my ship, normally this will be a tomato can or the likes. By clamping one end of your plank to the can and very slowly bend a full 90. The back support of the can dose give you a lot of freeway. By all means do build the ship that you have your eye on, you will find it very enjoyable. And by chance you do get stuck, then just holler help and with all of the ship on the Form that are so very willing to help out. ENJOY.

Regards Lawrence

Hi Joseph H

Yes there is framing all the way up, I built my Golden Hind in layers as I wanted her to have a deck between decks. A very uncongenial way to build but this is what I wanted to try. The Kits are rather easy so to speak or you can by plans from Amati that are very good. The ones that I got are rather advanced and they stump me at times for sure, Good Luck, ENJOY.

Hello Ship Mates

I again thank you all for all of your visits to my build log on the little ship the Golden Hind. Also for your many likes.

Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have been busy tidying up things just a bit. We have built and installed the eight Knees on the Mane Deck, we have cut out and installed the Grating on the Focal and also installed the one the Mane Deck. We have decided to start the Hull Planking. We have installed three rows of Planking that are 3mm or 0,125" x 1.5mm or 0.60". So my Ship Mates will know what I am up to for the next couple o days at least,  ENJOY.

Regards Lawrence

Hello Ship Mates

I thank you all for all of your visits to my build log .

Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have spent almost the past 3 days in planking the hull and we have only reached the half way point. This seams like a long time for such a small ship like the Golden Hind. But then again this is due to the very narrow planks that we are planking the hull with as they are only 3mm or 0.125" wide, we will be back at it again tomorrow,                                                                                                                ENJOY.

Regards   Lawrence
