Ahoy There!!!

I'm an aspiring artist who seeks to write, draw, and design ships just for personal pleasure. Apparently I do not know anything about ships so I'm here to learn. I hope I do not sound too selfish?

I would like to know the design aspect that makes a ship sturdy. I would love to learn the names, the costs and the pain that requires well maintenance. Not only that, I wish to learn what new and old ships are like, what makes them special... you get the idea.

Another thing that sparks my interest in ships is because of my mother's dream of me purchasing a yacht for her... Ahahahahahahahaha!
It's true believe me.

Anywho, please refer to me as JP. Thanks and Good Day to all!!
