    Default Belated November Workbench

    Happy Thanksgiving to all my Yank shipmates!
    This appears to have been a very quiet month for projects on the Anchorage.

    I completed one ship during the month and started another.
    Henry's little 22-gun brig snow HMS Ontario was a fun build.
    She never saw battle and sank in a storm just 5 months after launch. Her fame comes from the discovery of the unusually well preserved wreck in 2008.

    And the ship I'm working on now is Henry's American privateer Prince de Neufchatel.

    Both these ships are looking very smart and up to your usual high standard of workmanship Vol.
    Thanks for posting them for us all to enjoy.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    I wish so much I had more time (and talent) to make those very like sails that look so real. What a great job and pleasure for our eyes, bravo Sir !

    How much time did you spend on this ship's sails, by the way, Vol ? Just to have an idea.

    The cloth sails do take a little longer than making paper sails Roméo. I have never timed myself but I would say, including drying time, four hours for a small ship like this and perhaps five for a third rate. Figure an hour less for paper.
