    got a fair bit done lately, shortened the hull sides for the forecastle deck , I'll shorten the deck a bit later , when the time come's to do it . I also moved the skylight back on the poop deck

    started mucking about with the channel's , moving them down one deck , and filling in the heller holes , apparently their are less shrouds on the 1765 model
