Just as a quick update here are some old renderings of the boat itself.
The name Tres Petite Hermine is only there as a name stub although I may stick with it. The idea came from the names of the 3 ships Jacques Cartier used to sail up the St.Lawrence which were called the Emerillon, the Grande Hermine, and the Petite Hermine. Since my ship is smaller than the “Small” Hermine mine is the Tres Petite Hermine or “Very Small” Hermine.
Another thing to note is that there are portholes in the final version so it’s not just a floating coffin and that the hull colours will be different as I’m probably going with Aluminum instead of Steel.
