    John,

    As we talked about above, I've sent you an e-mail about submitting something to the magazine about your project.

    In the meantime, I've been wondering how the model is coming along? I hope that all is going very well!

    It looks like a fascinating project.  I look forward to seeing the progress.  If I can free up some time I'll take you up on that invitation!

    Cheers

    John,

    That's great news!

    I will be happy to be in touch by e-mail. The JRA annual general meeting has just happened, and my JRA e-mail address will be changing, as I am becoming the sailing  secretary. I will write to you as soon as the e-mail address is sorted out.

    Many thanks,

    Shemaya

    John,

    What a wonderful invitation! I so hope that some JRA members are able to take you up on that! Getting to sail on the boat would especially be such a tremendous experience. Thank you so much for extending this invitation. I wonder if you might like to write a little something for the JRA magazine about this project, and that you are open to visitors? More people might see that, who do not keep up with the website discussions. Any way around, it will be wonderful to hear how the project progresses.

    Very best wishes,

    Shemaya

    Shemaya,

    The boat will be built at Quanzhou (ancient name: Citong) where the wreck was excavated and displayed. Archaeolgical relics displayed in the museum showed that the ship has been to Africa and Arabia 800 years ago. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quanzhou_Maritime_Museum

     The build will take about 2 months. JRA members are welcomed to come and join us at any stage and test sail with us upon completion. In order to maintain archaeological integrity, we will be using bamboo sails with 2 masts. (although single mast is more reasonable for a boat of 7.5m LOA)

    Can anyone suggest the position of lead distance (ie CE in front of CLR)?

    I hope that they were.  The decorated sterns are so wonderful.

    David Tyler made a suggestion here, that is well worth debating.

    It's interesting to know that the Song dynasty hull was constructed with both carvel and clinker boarding. The boarding have multiple layers.

    That's great, John! The computer model is showing a nice bow transom, similar to SibLim's - what does the stern look like?
