    Fabulous looking boat. I don't think I could live with pink decks, but on that boat it looks fine.

    One of its uses was as a fire "ketch" in naval battles.

    Nice boat. Am I right assuming the main will be reefed to the mast in vertical bands like a curtain?

    Thanks, I only read about such a rig, would love to see rigging details and hear about how it handles. As far as I know and please correct me if I am wrong there is a cable between the sprit and the mast on wich the sail slides on rings?

    I think it runs on rings,

    You can view more photos at the builder's, Nikolas Vlavianos (middle picture below) facebook page https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater

    In the meantime progress continues on rigging with a push to get her ready for an appearance at the ancient harbor of Avlida.

    On tow to Avlida for the theatre performance of "Penelopiada" which is a modern rewrite of Homer's "Odyssey". The boat ferries the chorus on the river Styx to Hade's Halls etc.

This was original the color of the decks on all war small or big ships the era of the Hellenic independence revolution. Dark wine red, It is very hot for the summer time and not real good for the deck timber. These small boats where manned by 16 or even 20 people crew... plenty hands to keep it wet all the day time. That color was chosen for psychological reasons, not to create fear emotions in combat by the blood spread from the companion sailor who lost… his arm or his head.
