The hull and deck planking is complete.

A number of deck fittings and funiture are completed – including fife rails, capstan, and bildge pump.

The completed model will be have details more similar to Chapelle’s historical reconstrution than the current Niagara. For example sweep ports have been placed at deck level, an alternate configuation for deck houses has been chosen, and a wheel will be added to control the ship.
