** NOTE** There is a HUGE gap of time between my last “Golden Hind” post and the new ones below!  Don’t worry, I have documented all of the work that I have been doing over the past year.  I will be updating this page of links, in chronological order over the next few months.  For now, I need to start somewhere in doing this, so below will be more current posts and I will work backwards from there.

If you would like to view some of the images that will be included in the “missing posts”, you can follow the added link at the end of this paragraph. It will take you to a Facebook photo album that contains 262 photographs.

There is also a video that I made of what the process was like to restore the old cast iron ballast. I did this work back mid-July of 2015. The video will be included in an upcoming article! But for now, here is a link to it:

    eagerly awaiting the updates!

    • As the temperatures have begun to warm up, and I can get epoxy to cure(!), work has commenced again on ElizaLin! Over the past two weeks, I have installed a set of frames and a matching floor timber, along with gluing up three new floor timbers. Photos will begin to be posted in the near future!

  4. Keep up the good work
