    We used small powder charges.

    In this a Swedish navy cap lock pistol model 1854 is fired. Note the time from fire to bullet hitting metal.

    I'm sad to say I think the vessels look a little too cartoony for my taste.

    I'm not sure in what way, but Ares managed to make the ships give a great impression. Yes, their masts/sails support...

    Very nice!

    Could the waves be adjusted to accomodate the boats? I'm thinking using a card board cut out or something and forming the waves around that. It would make the boats "sit more in the...

    Thank you everyone.
