WOW! I can't get over the bow slicing through those waves! I'm speechless and at the same time ... very seasick! Nice weathering as swell.

Nice weathering, and that tossing sea really brings the little Flower to life!

They said Flowers would roll even on wet grass, and Bill, you've perfectly captured the character of a corvette on the high seas! --Karl

Hi Bill,

I haven't been over on Shipwrights for a while and this was the first thing I saw, Splendid work, a really great display of the ship in high seas. Love it.
