Thanks Jason
Appreciated I most definitely will get some pics of her when she sets sail
For now added some detail yesterday evening glazed the wheelhouse and sorted the dash excuse the shoddy paintwork
Not a very experienced painter me :)
Starting to look better more like a real boat

DIZZYMAN,
               If you want to be all nautical and p.c. then the things on the front are the "knees" and the holes in the "bulwarks" (sides around the deck) are the "freeing ports" and "scuppers" go down from the deck to exit below the deck line.
  Not nitpickin but theres no need to make up names.
 You are making a fine model, I have 3 hulls on the go, must get back to them.
