Well Don, What a great job you have accomplished, I to am a senior and have only just started building Lumberyards HANNA. You have encouraged
me no end, love your stern and hope I can build the same as you.
Best wishes. JANET
Progress pictures, finished with all now to mount it, pictures showing swivel guns mounted, deck guns in place and rudder finished it was a GREAT BUILD with many thanks to Dave for his kind help, the turning point for me was making the teplates for the WALES, MOLDING, cut off from jig, and the deck clamps AGAIN THANKS TO DAVE from there it went well solved many problems
I have just spent the last couple of hours going over your Halifax build. You do show a very lot of very helpful information both on your own and also that of your very helpful shipmates. Using the Lumberyard building jig was very interesting to me with a lot of helpful hints that we help me greatly on my build the Oliver Cromwell, Thanks. I am very far behind you as of yet I have only cut out and roughly sanded but 7 Ribs with another two in the drying press. I do believe that I will leave the Ribs for a few days and start working on the Keel, Bow and stern timbers just for a slight change in pace. You say that you are 80 years old as I have 3 1/2 years to catch up to you, I only hope that I am half as spry as you when I finally get there, ENJOY.
