Did the crew row it to the target then swing round and fire the cannon?        

Yes, they would work in a group and would try to manoeuvre towards the rear of their target so they could fire on the ship's exposed rear quarter.

That must have been quite daring to head straight at the enemy and then turn about to fire having to be so close as well  :book:

It's been a while since the last update 🙂

 

Finally started with the rigging.

Slowly I am getting closer to the end 🙂 There will be no sails, the spars are still coming.

It is indeed a strange looking boat I really felt in love with while building 🙂

Looking very, very nice. Glad to see that the rudder can be operated remotely, just wouldn't want to be anywhere near the tiller when that cannon is needed.

Today I took the final pictures and call this build finished 🙂 Great kit from Master Korabel which was a lot of fun.

Thanks for all the nice comments and the many "Likes". It's always a great pleasure to be "accompanied" during the building process 🙂
