    I always wait for good, not foul weather to set sail :wink:

    We can't get to our boat even though the yard is open because its a 5 hour drive there and we can't stay overnight. Hopefully come the...

    I've read a bit more and am coming to the conclusion that one size doesn't fit all. It depends on mast size, boom size and sail size and matbe lateen sails are used differently on different boats in...

    This is something I'd thought about, how to get the sail to the other side of the mast, and you got me looking at internet videos.

    That's interesting, I would have expected rigid to be better than slightly floppy, thanks for the tip.

    Rob that's coming on very nicely, as Dobbs said it's good to see the old with the new style of fortifications, it adds realism and history to a build. It will also go very well with your backdrop to...

    Vol your ship does look amazing and I like the fact its it's not on a base so that when you photographed it with the backdrop in place it looks so realistic.

    I agree that Dobbs thinner bases are more aesthetically pleasing than the thick ones, but I was thinking of just using the clear part of the base, I think that would mean removing all the peg on the...

    I've still only played a few games so not really worried about it yet.

    What I did for the previous couple of games was to shuffle the 2 ball chits with the 2 double shot chits and place 2 of these...

    I'd noticed that on the cliffs but not the dry dock. I like what you did with the fallen rocks on the beach as well. I am considering making a separate beach for clandestine landings in some of the...

    Thanks Rob, I think if I had reversed the chits drawn on that first salvo then I might have had more of a chance, the luck of the draw was against me there. I didn't use double shot in this game...

    Hi Dobbs I have just checked move 4 and you are quite right, 9 on your chart results in move card 7. I think I just added +4 to my dice rolled of 5 to give me 9 and left it at that without doing the...

    Hi Dobbs the Rep is well deserved, you've put a lot of thought into this, as with a lot of your other ideas.

    Got it in 2. the shells in the armour plate are outstanding, I'd forgotten about them. The works themselves are good but there are some beautiful ones on mainland Europe.

    Thanks for the lead.
