Now, that got your attention! Actually as I mentioned in the fall, I decided to take on a wooden ship model as a winter project. This is a beginner's model of a type of fishing boat that was used on the East Coast. It is fairly simple, being made of 1/16 plywood for the most part. Looking at the design though, I think you could probably build the real thing, with a few more bulkheads and proper accommodations. Don't think I'll try though. At the rate I work, I'd be dead before the project was finished.

More to come as I progress. I started this a couple of weeks ago, but made a minor mistake which I had difficulty fixing, then got pissed off with myself, and walked away from it for a while. I got back to it, fixed the problem quickly and it is progressing apace. If this goes well, I may have time for another before spring.
