I love doing ships. Love it. One of my favorite things to do in the world. It’s a tricky-ass challenge. I love doing the research, trying to make things acurrate and simplified, and I live being on a boat in the water. I love it.
I grew up in coastal Massachusetts, my dad worked on, for and built boats, am the descendant of a real old New Bedford whaler, and I just fucking love it. It feels like it’s something I can relate to on some level however ridiculous it sounds. I don’t think I’ve ever “nailed it” yet with a ship, but I keep trying. The waves, rigging, all the things that are supposed to be there for superstition sake, I just love that shit. Come get a ship from me. I did these all within a month of each other. Thanks dudes.
