Building the Peregrine Galley: Lessons Learned

Prior to this model, I normally built the usual run of battleships (though with a preference for dreadnoughts and pre-dreadnoughts rather than World War II) and modern warships. Sailing ships are a whole different kettle of fish. As the Peregrine Galley was my first fully-rigged ship, she also served as a testbed for a number of ideas I had for replicating wood construction techniques in paper, with varying degrees of success. Here are some lessons learned.
