As I said, I don't have the patience to build big ones, although I did when I was a lot younger. I could build big ones if I wanted, but I don't want! I prefer something that can be held in one hand, and that doesn't take very long. Fortunately, no-one has, to my knowledge, produced a kit of Mary Celeste. If they had, I would never even have built it in the first place :lol: After a good deal of research, I drew up my own plans, sail and deck, and they are included in this online publication, for a mere $2 US (Via Paypal)- less than the price of a cup of coffee!
Click this link and scroll down a bit to read the synopsis http://payhip.com/b/mMQw Then, if you wish to purchase a download, a Paypal button is provided for GBP 1.49 ($2 USD).
