It’s great to see that while the old lady is undergoing some serious surgery, her jolly boat is still getting some use. Try scrolling down, clicking on the 'older posts' button at the bottom of this page - or try the search gadget! Its use was to ferry people to and from the ship as well as taking people on other pursuits, like looking for buried treasure. Up to this point, I'd only built two Midwest kits, which use a simplified method of planking, and was in the middle of Smuggler, which is a solid-hull model. Reading the books on planking left me more confused than educated, but once I actually got into doing it, the light came on in my brain and everything I'd read made sense at last.


I used the pre-sewn sails, the brass-ring mast hoops, and even the cast boom jaws (why cast boom jaws?!?!). Its right up on the top of my favorites list – I am always pleased to find lovely pictures and boats. Included in this multi-part set is the boat itself, a set of oars, a single oar prop, sacks, ropes and the water plane as used in the promos.
That's not to say that I did a perfect job of planking, but at least I understood the process.
I'd accomplished what I'd wanted to learn once I built the hull, so the rest was just a quick job of finishing up the kit rather than bashing it to make it look halfway decent. There was nothing in the kit or instuctions that told you how or where to belay all the lines and no belaying pins provided.
