And even more pirate ship stuff

You know, I've led a pretty bung-less life. Seriously, it never even crossed my mind to fill in the holes left by screws with bungs, but now it seems crazy to leave empty holes in wood. The pirate ship has, literally, hundreds of bungs filling the screw holes. They add character to the ship. They look awesome.

Today's progress includes the finalizing of the planking and the fitting of the cap on the bow of the ship. Yes, there's a boat term for this cap, but I can't recall it. I know...

Here's a couple pix - one of Nate routing this cap and one of the side profile of the ship. Meanwhile, Krissy was filling the holes and Ric was staining the ship. It's gonna be a dark brown.
