    πŸ“ Phase three

    Filling in the planks between upper and lower planking is slow as the clamps get in the way need to let each new plank set before starting a new row.
    Started the upper level to the transom.

    πŸ“ Phase two

    Now have 5 rows on second phase. While doing the sides I found that I needed to do work on the transom. The ply used in the kit is 1/8 and breaks easily. I've done almost 90% of the work will fill-in the rest when finished planking the rest of the hull in phase three.

    πŸ“ Second stage
    2 days ago by Newby7 ( Vice Admiral)
    Flag
    The planking for the next stage uses 1/8 x 1/8 basswood my go to wood to build with.
    I read the write up a few times as I had trouble with what it was saying to do.
    Having the boat off the building board the first basswood piece starts at the top down to the keel.
    The problem I had was it said to glue only on frame 1 and 10 if you don't glue on all frames how do you get the shape to stay in place.
    I have glued on all frames now down to the third row and the shape is in place.
    There are 8 rows will show photos in the next post.

    πŸ“ Stand

    View All
    The write up for the stand in the kit was not to my liking so went to my way of building a stand.
    Use two frames from the kit on 12" apart and drew them on to two pieces of 1/4 " ply. 4 pcs of 1/2" dowel to hold the frames
    Drilled 4 holes and glued all together.

    πŸ“ Planking
    4 days ago by Newby7 ( Vice Admiral)
    Flag
    For the first part of the planking it says to have 10 planks from the keel on both sides.
    The planking is going well as I have 6 rows on one side and 5 on the other.
    I had started with one on each side and a second on one side letting all glue to set. I now do one each side to get to where I am now.
    When the 10 rows are done the boat can be removed from the building board on to the next steps for the planking.
    This method is not how I have planked my previous boats.
    I will follow their write up to the next stage .

    πŸ“ Frames and Planking
    6 days ago by Newby7 ( Vice Admiral)
    Flag
    View All
    First part was to glue all the frames in place. After letting the glue set the chine strips were glued into place (deck edge stringer) and (rub rail stringer)
    The first two planks were glue in on each side of the keel.
    After reading more about the Lord Nelson (Yacht) Victory Tug. The boat's name is misleading because it is not a scruffy tug. The Victory is a beautiful appointed cruising yacht designed to look like a tug. Luxurious setup for a couple it will sleep five comfortable.
    There are 76 Victory tug built at 37'
    6 Victory tugs built at 41'and 9 Victory tugs built at 49'
    From information I found most are still on the water

    Located the keel and building frame. Built the keel and cut the shaft slot for the stuffing box. Nailed the building frame on to the my building board. Cut out the frames and test fit to the building frame and board. Glue to do yet.
