Thanks for kind words.

About plans:
Befoer in some other forum (Croatian), I mention how much I like this boat. In some way is connected to my father origin.
One colleague find plans of this xebec on the internet and forward them to me. This is a good plans, very acurate.
But still, a lot of things I had to figure out. I had a lot of difficult situation, but never thing to give up.

If You need some help about plans for this ship, no problem.

Hi Barba

I am very much impressed with your build of the Xebec Le Requin, you have shown great skills in the building of your ship, I am very much impressed with your hull frames , this as yet I have never tried to do but with your build log I do believe that I would be willing to give a good attempt . Just love all of that very fine detail that you have added to your little ship, ENJOY.

Regards Lawrence

Hi

Small digression :

Through Easter We went on a trip to Hvar. It is an island in Croatia, one of the nicest. Nice, clear sea, rich history. The most beautiful thing was that there are still no tourists so we really enjoyed the beautiful weather and peace. We enjoyed in fish specialties made with homemade recipes. I really have to say I've filled my batteries well. We went through Split too. It is the second largest city in Croatia, the same full of history and very special people.

Here are a few pictures to try to make you look at this beauty. I also have panoramic pictures but are too big for forums, damn it!

Just a note, not working for a tourist agency, I just love my lovely country!

Such a beautiful place, looks like it could be part of the French Riviera, and steeped in history. You were lucky that there were no whining tourists.

beautiful pictures. I spent 15 years in the Middle East and I never visited Europe. Now I'm a bit afraid to travel due to terrorism. Perhaps if I took a ship? :text-lol: thanks for sharing. :music-rockout: :handgestures-salute:
