Hi Ken
Looks Great, I've been on the Real one a couple of times now. Yours looks just like Her. She's a Beautiful steamer & the Only Sea going steamer left.
Sails regularly during the summer months up here.

Looks nice! But in the pool she seems a tad down by the bows! I think you need to trim balast a bit. No need to ship any water over the fo'c'sle during those windy days on the high pool seas!
