I built a wooden model of the Schooner BLUENOSE
. Its a Canadian symbol I believe it was on a nickel.
I had a set of plans from a kit and just recreate the hull from a "half hull" used by old yacht builders to make the lines of a boats hull in an exact scale. Took over a month of about an hour a day and some weekends of maybe 3 hours on Sundays when we werent out . I want to build a model of the Great Lakes Ore Carrier "Mesabi Miner
". I did a trip from the "range" down to Cleveland long ago on the Miner and loved it. It was in the spring and it was breezy and comfortable with no incidents or rough waters. DMIR was my client then and I think they leased the Miner from Interlake, not sure. It was a fascinating project that involved science and maritime environmental law.

Heading home after a short stop at Monhegan ( If we have to quarantine, we will just putt around the island so I can get some photos of Rockwell Kent painting scenes). Supposed to be decent weather next few.
