Back in March, the kids put forward their wish list for the pirate ship that I've been promising them for the last couple of years.
Since then I've been working on finishing that front bed, which was a necessary precursor because there was a big heap of compost in the way of the pirate ship that made its way into the bed.
Now that's done, I need to crack on. Expectations duly set, I now have my working drawings for the project.
Here's the master plan for how it should look. A proper pirate ship, masts, wheel, crows nest and all. To give an idea of scale, the whole thing is 24' in length, and 6' wide at its widest point.
And here are the construction drawings for the platform. With a solid base like this, decking and sides will be relatively easy to attach.
Wish me luck!
