The hull and deck planking is complete.

A number of deck fittings and furniture 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.

Continuing work on the Niagara.
