      Making a beginning with the scribing. It has finally occurred to me that I don't have to get this done in one pass. In fact I might not get it done in quite a few passes - but I will get it done, and done right. This is the first pass on the upper bow area. The corners of the larger hatches have to be filled and then have the final corners rescribed; the latches and hinges have to be added as well.

      I also added the walkways on either side of the fin.

        Excellent start with the scribing. This is going to be beautiful!

                More marking and scribing today. Still lots of stuff to get marked off on the forward section of the hull.

                More work on the sail. The rised (and messy) scribing hasn't been sanded down yet. It will look a little more uniform once its flattened to the same level as the rest of the hull.

                  This was all going swimmingly when, I discovered a new and interesting photograph of the bow section. Thus:

                  I have two different sets of plans for this boat however this photograph proves both of them to be wrong. What I had marked out as a cable locker is in fact the forward capstan. The cable hole is well forward. I also managed to get the forward bolards in backwards. So back to the drawing board.

                  New changes as of this afternoon.

                        I've never seen No1 either. Do you have any of the sail taken from either side square on? Little problem with the rear sail vents.

                          PS. The reason that I rediscovered the bow photograph showing the correct detail was that I had taken it out of the "Beluga" folder so that I could send a copy to Bart during the grerat rear hatch debate. I forgot to put it back in the folder and missed the detail when I did the scribing. So.... as always, IT's BART's FAULT!!!
