    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I bet the slim frames need constant attention. maybe a good candidate for a plastic encapsulation project.

    I like the planks to have kind of a herringbone pattern.

    But when you look at true
    Wabi Sabi you see this broken made whole and more beautiful. It’s different than this image which is just slightly off in every aspect, just slight cocked, the model is slightly off, the boat is slightly cocked to the right. It’s like a frame hun just crooked enough to make you want to straitened it.

    So... you insist on 'formal' symmetry, and are uncomfortable with 'informal'?

    More like I appreciate a full cocked image than a slightly cocked image you want to adjust.

    I noticed that the dock/anchor line is not in the chock.
    Unforgiveable!

    THAT was the first thing I noticed.

    Q. Foster once went on a sail on Tidbit with me and admonished me that my sheet lines were not properly twisted on their cleats. I never made that mistake again - FWIW she wrote the book on sailing Etiquette.

    Till this day I Flemish all dock lines.

    Can't see how Joe & I batting around issues of composition & OCD would add to that total. But you do have a point.

One example - here in the NW, with our wet weather, I will coil lines in the mostly dry summer months when the lines are getting used more often, and there's more foot traffic (including by lubbers) which escalates the potential for rolling a foot an a loose line. But not when the rains start - for reasons mentioned.
