Take a Bow

Here is a shot of Caxton's bow in the Reeves workshop. Not the elegant josher bow of some boats but a rather snub, workmanlike proboscis that seems to mean business: here I come, make way....
And here, starting the of adornment of that bow with the first coats of paint on the bow flair/flash. The hull is blacked with two-pac rather than bitumen paint and Caxton will be given another coat before leaving the confines of the Barnowl workshop.

The bow is one of the things I like about a Reeves shell (Debdale has one too!) I much prefer its lines to some of the high pointy ones you see around.
