I decided to do the ship in sections then put it together. The aft deck is one deck lower then the fore deck, so the main weather deck is the bow and rns about 3/4ths of the length of the ship.

Not to be to redundant I skipped ahead a bit in the pictures, so now we see the hull after several layers of body filler and grinding and refill.
