I have not made any of the Republic of Texas ships. If I could get the plans, I likely would venture into such a project. I have built a schooner that I named the Lively since Stephen F. Austin had such a ship to bring supplies into Texas in the 1820's.

Absolutely fantabulous. I don't have enough of a vocabulary to properly express the excellent craftsmanship, someone here has said it better with true "Master Shipwright." I have been fortunate enough to meet a master modeler who built square-riggers for museums, stunning work, nice workshop (odd little fellow! LOL!) and your work and attention to detail are equal +.

I've sailed aboard and worked aboard a reproduction square rigger (Mayflower II), and hope one day to build some square riggers (probably Aubrey/Hornblower), but has sooo much to learn and a long way to go before I get there.

Again, so well done, thank you for sharing.
