    Missed a few updates as I have been completing a new project.
    So hereโ€™s the final model, more detail to follow but for now itโ€™s on the back burner!
    A Lochin 33 is currently on the bench being completed for a man in Cornwall

    Hull is now out of the mould and the deck has been fitted but not fixed as I am waiting for motors to arrive. Wheelhouse and gantry are underway!

    It is well worth spending time to make that mould as perfect as possible before you make your first hull.
    I am sure you know that already.
    looking forward to seeing the hull.
    Good luck.

    Not sure about mass! Would be happy with one, two would be brilliant as I have someone who wants me to make a copy of their boat and three plus would be a bonus!

    Plans created and I have started to build the hull which is being constructed from plastiboards.
    The intention is to make a plug so I can do my first ever mould!

    I spent a day at sea to understand the gear and get lots of measurements. The boat is fishing for whelks currently and after hauling and shooting 200 pots we had just under 500 kilos!

    Hi Graham
    I bet you thoroughly enjoyed your day out.
    It certainly gives you a better understanding of the subject that you are about to build.
    It's also good that you are able to take measurements and photos of the real thing.

    Hi Graham, have you got plans for this boat? I believe
    Models by Design have a twin hull craft very similar to this, might be worth a look๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    ๐Ÿ“ Gemini G10 Catamaran fishing boat
    12 months ago by GrahamP74 ( Sub-Lieutenant)

    View All
    My next project has been a request from a local fisherman who after seeing my other models has asked me to make one of his. My father put the engines in the boat when it was first built. Julie Jean works from the beach at Dungeness. I am going to make the hulls from scratch as I can not find a catamaran hull with the right hull shape. This will be made from board and then coated in glass and resin. Scale will be metric 5cm - 1 m so total length will be 50cm..some photos here of the boat

    Very interesting project Graham,
    Will be following with interest, especially how you connect the two hulls.
    Two boats in one! Quite a job for scratch-building.
    But I'm sure, from what I've seen of your boats, that you're up to the challenge๐Ÿ‘
    Will it be static or RC?

    "Will be RC. Thatโ€™s what I am going to have to work out, ..."
    Excellent, good to hear๐Ÿ‘ Looking forward to the equipment fit.
    "joining the hills shouldnโ€™t be too hard.... ๐Ÿคž "
    Perhaps a tad more difficult than joining the hulls!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ
    Anyway, there aren't any hills within miles of Dungeness.
    Now around Folkestone that's another kettle of fish ....!
    Used to play in the hills north of the town as a kid.
    About where the Chunnel entrance now is I suppose, all concreted overโ˜น๏ธ
    We were BMXing there before BMXs were invented!
    Best of luck with your project๐Ÿ‘

    The Romney Marsh Mountain Rescue club might help out with the hills.

    Very interesting project. I'm sure I saw a model catamaran work boat, probably on our lake, recently, I must look out for it and see how he has done things. On thinking about it, it may have been at an open day.

    Best of luck with it.

    Bilge line is a bit off as well.
    But surely given the "base" plan from MB mag neither is so far different as to prevent you from modifying / scaling that plan to suit? Especially if you can scan it into a half decent drawing program! I did something similar for Krampus a while back just using jpg and pdf formats then.
    Nowadays I can use Corel Draw Tech Suite or Designer which makes such things much easier ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Go on Graham - Give it a go๐Ÿ‘
    Can't 'old me breff too much longer!
