    I’m fairly new here mysel but I can’t see any reason why not so long as we can see it os on or part of a traditional wooden boat, if unsure submit anyway because the worst that can happen is we say no and then you will know for another time, nothing ventured etc!

    Welcome aboard. I’ll look forward to seeing what else you have to share with us .

    Sam :O)
