  1. One trick that I have used for something like that is to find some wood that is a very close match to those planks. I then use the sanding drum on my Dremel to create a pile of sawdust. Mix that with some white glue or any other binding agent and you will have a putty that fills in the gaps. The fill will hardly be noticeable if your new wood is a close match. HTH.

    Jamie, have you tried taking your old hard drive to a shop that specializes in data recovery? It would be a pity to loose the WIP research.

    Newby question on rigging

    Standing rigging was tarred so it would be black. Running rigging would be natural hemp. HTH

    I have a variable speed Dremel but even its slowest speed is too fast. See if you can find a fixed speed Dremel (usually an old one) and then get a variable speed control switch at any place that sells electrical parts. They are frequently used for light dimmers. Do not try the dimmer with the variable speed unit - won't work. I have used my drill press rig with a sanding drum so I can use it to shape wooden parts. Dusty but effective.

    Thank you for putting a ruler along side. Many people post photos with coins as a reference but I have no idea of their actual size. The coins that I can use are North American, not European or Asian. I don't expect Europeans or Asians to know the size of North American coins either. A ruler solves all those problems. My pet peeve. Rant mode off.

    Can't say about the seamanship but it was one heck of a good navigation job.
