    Almost home made Router Table.
    Thanks for the interesting insight into professional woodworking equipment, and the CKD explanation what we would call "flat pack" bit like jandels and thongs 😁 I do recall the name Criterion. The Incra is American the original and still available is in imperial as would be expected, mine is metric, everything is included along with the templates, the woodpecker base I don't think is available any more. I got mine from Timbecon in Melbourne, looks like Ubuy or Carbatec carry Incra in your neck of the woods. Cheers, Stephen. Cheers, Stephen.

    Dumas Victory tug
    If you want to build something like the Dumas Victory, how about building a fishing vessel with a good flaring head, then putting a traditional tug like superstructure on her. Nerys

    Lord Nelson Victory Tug
    From the same estate sale. Her paint is blistering off the hull. She is Covered in canvas on the hull, so I will strip her, glass her and repaint her. All electronics as well. I will update the photos when she is done.
    Zwarte Zee
    Picked this one up from an estate sale. Builder did a quality job. She is fully set up with electronics. I will save the electric for winter work. Stored for years in a smokers room. a lot of cleaning. Windex works great.
    Covid 19
    This was built during Covid 19 shut down. It was modified from a Zippkits tugster kit that I had around.
    Wacht am Rhein
    I got this boat back in 1996 from Deans Marine. Scale is 1/32 Length is 965mm Beam is 180mm The model is of an 1893 Rhein Tug. She has a glass fibre hull with a detailed moulded hull. the deck housings are in Vacformed plastic and 1mm sheet plastic, and the fittings are in white metal, the ships boat on mine is resin cast. Today's models have laser cut decks and deck housings, fittings are in light alloy. All in all she is a good model to make, and like all Deans kit's there is room to make her your own.
    Afon Alaw
    Will enter detail in time. Afon Alaw is based on a real tug. At moment working around Denmark.
    Gaff Rigged Cutter 'Ellen'
    Semi-scale inspired by the design of gaff rigged pilot cutters. Based on plans from Gary Webb (bearospaceindustries.com) it took 6 months to build. Hull is ply sheeting over ply bulkheads. Three channel RC - two sail winches plus rudder. Removable rig, keel and rudder plus retractable bowsprit for transport. Overall length 58in, hull length at deck level 43in, beam 12 3/4in. Sail area is 1180 sq ins. Lots of scale like detail added to the basic plan including anchor winch, tiller, skylight, gooseneck, deadeyes, working blocks with brass sheeves...

    Dusseldorf
    Finally finished with club help(Thanks), a couple of pictures of it in water(water splash on pool surround caused by working monitors) and lighting shown in workshop activated using a servo operating a spring micro switch. Peter you can see the problem re dinghy on stern. Has a small turning circle at high speed and very stable
