Norske3, Congratulations. I can just imagine how detailed the artwork is. A nice time to have drawn the boat.

I hope it's for you Norske3. Some things are worth keeping as an artist.

Warren.

ps, Now draw Alinghi. I don't know if John B would agree, :D .

Beautiful drawing Norske, stunning work. I think many of us would love to commission you to draw our vessels. Hell I would love a drawing in that medium of Annette ( my little dhow :D ) :D How are you doing? Looking at your imagestation account I'm with heavy heart seeing that red boat you almost gave me :rolleyes:

I had the chance to sail on a reproduction of America out of Newport last summer stunning vessel and stable as all hell. Captain said he has sailed her up and down the East coast in all weather and has been unable to put the rails in the soup once.

Joe, You're a lucky man to have a sail on that boat.
Norske, It's blowing very hard at the moment.
