I concur - it does look super good!

On another note - can you polease expand on your statement - "Main reason the Federal government stopped these recently is because of all the wood they contain"? I am afraid of whatyour answer is going to be but I have to ask.. :D do you mean that they mandated the stopping of the use of these vessels? B) :) :)


They can't have overnight cruises, though they can have short day and dinner cruises and act as a shuttle. Here's the story regarding the Delta Queen, which was moved from Memphis to Chattanooga:

...Ambassadors continues searching for a buyer to operate it as an overnight cruise vessel.

The company will also continue pursuing a congressional exemption for the 82-year old vessel since federal law prohibits it from operating overnight cruise voyages without an exemption due to its wooden superstructure.

That is awesome Harry. I've done a few ships in my time and I know how tedious they cane be. Most the ones I did had the masts and rigging and all and were still plastic at the time. I have noticed at the stores,most have gone to wood. You did an excelent job on this. About how long did this take to build? You mught have inspired me to tackel another. Most excellent !!!

Hard to say because I worked on it in spurts when I had time. I would guess about 200-300 hours overall, maybe a little more. It's really hard to say because I wasn't particularly keeping track. It was "in progress" for several months, but not continuously.
