Ok, my decision is made and boy it wasn't easy! I have sent the ratings off to the Sponsors to get their input and consent on the winners. Once I hear back from them, I will post the results.

Great job everyone :thumbs_up_1:

Matt

Congratulations to the winners and it was nice to work toward a deadline in a group like this. At least I can say I've competed against Jim Russell..

That last sentence gave a laugh...my first thought when I saw I won was "you only won because Jan didn't finish the oiler"!!!

Better just to enjoy the ride.

Hello ,

also congratulations from me! :thumbs_up_1: To all the winners, but also to all the participants. A lot of beautiful builds
there. So, i think everyone is a winner. :big_grin:

I am sorry, that i couldn´t get my vessel ready for the show, but i must admit that really underestimated the work to be done
in relation to the time frame. And furthermore i really don´t like to work "against the clock". :roll_eyes:
But if i like one of the next group build themes, i´ll be back! :heh:

Greetings from the North Sea Coast, Jan :wave_1:

After working on Hokoku Maru for a while I've decided to finish Poelau Laut first. For the first time I'm using Jim's watercolor paper method for the water and Eduard passenger figures to populate the decks.
The unsharp vertical structure on the right in the first picture marks Poelau Laut's place of the birth, the former NDSM shipyard. I live half a mile to the northeast.

I've also added the missing booms and their supports.

Thanks for the comment. She's not finished yet, I'm trying to gather enough courage to start rigging her.

After EJ's comment in another thread I've measured the waves. Poelau Laut is doing more than 15 knots which is a bit fast for her. Official service speed was only 14. Lets' say she's recently out of dock and using the Indian ocean monsoon to meet her schedule.
