We will make the adjustment. Thanks for the tip!
I don’t want to be too picky about this. The sail and hull are spot on! However the trunk cabin and coming are really way off. Can I send photos of the boat, that might help you and Tyler ? I realize the drawings might be too flat to interept these forms if you’re not familiar with these types of sailboats. If I bear any responsibility on that front I apologize. -John
We received the pix you sent also. We will rework it and post the results.
Its hard to tell from the photos, but the 2 portholes.. Are they totally round? Can you make them almond shaped? Its such a pronounced feature on the piece and the almond shaped portholes are kind of tell tale feature of the boat. Other than that I think it looks really very nice! -John
Hi Tyler and David-thanks for working on our weathervane it’s going to look great on the old shed! – john & Christine
