It's almost 2 feet long yet so light I can hold the model at any precarious angle in my left hand as I draw. I can do everything a sailor would need to do to handle her sails while staying on any course. All the little blocks and hatches and even the wheel and rudder work using the same mechanics as the original boat was equipped with a hundred fifty years ago.

I agree with a couple of the scenes -- we are still working on it; everything here is an experiment. So thanks, Peter; good to know that people will notice this.To comment on the painted water; i love Sandra's colours here, although maybe i would prefer it if the colours of the waves would be strictly confined by the animationlines, because now the painted waves and the drawn wavelines move separately from each other, i'm afraid it weakens the animation of the waves which i think you did particularly wel.
Technically it could be easily achieved by masking each wave face on a separate layer and then paint the water surface structure using these masks.
