The Swift 1805 Pilot Boat (my nearly finished project was actually started in 1984.) . . . After putting together the false keel, bulwarks and false deck, and a false start on planking, the model was carefully packed away for 20 years. I started again in the summer of 2004, beginning with the planking.
