I am very pleased to report that I have completed the build of my Bluenose. Definitely my best effort to date (as of 2014). Huge thanks to Bob Hunt and his practicum, and all the LSS forum members who provided encouragement, ideas, and answers. Just a final word on build duration. Although I'm reporting 241 hours total build time, please keep in mind that is only the amount of time actually spent on the bench working on the model. I estimate 2 - 3 times that long was spent reading the practicum, studying plans, reading other build logs, research, gathering materials, reading the practicum again, studying photos of the ship, pondering, gazing, drinking coffee, and reading the practicum again.

Build duration this step: 12 hours
Total build duration: 241 hours

(I hope you all enjoyed my re-posting of this build log from 2014. Ships of Scale seems like a good place to collaborate. I am happy to help in any way I can).

Absolutely stunning. True craftsmanship at work here. Nice techniques. I like the dead eye spacer. I made one, one time but yours seems to work better than what i did.
