My latest blog post shows how I built a Carrack to add to my fleet of Medieval boats to use in the new rules set 'Never Mind The Boathooks:



I hope that you find it useful

Needs more ropes! At least, according to the first picture on your blog.
I, on the other hand, think you did a fantastic job!

Stryderg, Thanks for your comments. I deliberately leave the rigging off. These boats are used in a game that requires figures to be moved on and off the decks. Adding the rigging just means that they will get broken during the games that we play! Even the big spars are on magnets so that when we catch them, as inevitabliy happens, they just come away and not break.
regards, Steve
