Yes, the hull is quite lovely. It looks like it will float well.

I love your hull!  :pir-wub:

The rigging isn't really my thing with the square sails, while the masts looks great.
I've seen some pics of a Lugger and I noticed they also had tricorner sails.
I would like the rigging more with tricorner sails but that's just my opinion.
Your hull is doing the job!!  :thumbup:

Very nice hull. Certainly frontpage quality, this MOC. Although I do agree with the others about the sails. But thanks for sharing! :pir-classic:

A very well build hull witha nice colorscheme, cool!

I do think the masts are a bit short, but i don't know what he modelled it after..?
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

I believe Gambort wanted to represent the French lugger "Le Coureur", but admittedly, it looks nothing like it. :pir-grin:
