    Good day,
    It's been a while since my first introduction to the group. I have been busy with a lot of summer chores and camping.
    The rudder is made of brass covered with wood. the end top part of the shaft has a ring to prevent the rudder to be lifted. The rudder is inserted in a rectangular hole, down to the botom position in a small hole that serve as a pivot point. The rectangular plate with a triangle hinge is placed onto the rudder shaft and the ring prevents the rudder to be raised. At the end of the the triangular hinge is attached a security chain that is also attached to the rudder is case it comes out of the pilot hole. The rudder and the assembly is complete. A lot of sanding is to be done.
    The mast (2) are made of 19/32 brass tube. The cupling are made of aluminium and they swivel on all directions. Some parts are made on a CNC machine by my brother Gilles which was a machinist.
    The hull has been painted and some rub rail added and more to come. I am used to paint with a 4" bristle. Making all the paint detailed will be a challenge.

    Have a nice day.

    Is there a way to upload the pictures in the right order.

    "The pond where I go has a huge fountain in the middle. "
    Mine too Yves๐Ÿค” The last thing we want to do is to suddenly turn our ships into 'flying boats'.
    Esp. as I don't have a flying license ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Excellent work so far, looking forward to the next instalment.

    I seem to remember another member looking for info on this vessel a while back.
    That's when I first discovered her NW Passage history.
    Intriguing subject, Bon chance mon ami๐Ÿ‘
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    What an interesting history your boat has. I'll google her to find out her full story. I would suggest that your model is paying a full tribute to a very worthy vessel.

    The vessel was a floating Police detachment on the R.C.M.P. enforcing the laws of Canada. Transporting people and goods from one detachment to another among other chores.

    Here is a brief history of the vessel that I am building.

    St. Roch (ship)
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    RCMPV St. Roch is a Royal Canadian Mounted Police schooner, the first ship to completely circumnavigate North America, and the second vessel to transit the Northwest Passage. She was the first ship to complete the Northwest Passage in the direction west to east (Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean), going the same route that Amundsen on the sailing vessel Gjรธa went east to west, 38 years earlier.

    Sixteen years after being launched, St. Roch was refitted at Dartmouth, N.S. in preparation for her 1944 voyage. A much larger deckhouse was constructed with individual cabins for the crew, the 150 hp diesel engine was replaced with a 300 hp. diesel, and there were other, lesser, upgrades.
    The ship was most often captained by Henry Larsen.

    The ship is located at the Vancouver Maritime Museum in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and is open to the public for scheduled visits.

    There is a lot more history on internet.

    ------------------------------------

    The vessel was built in 1928 as a schooner, there was a restoration in 1930 and it was painted white and grey and a major restoration in 1944 as a ketch to the original color. When I looked at many pictures, I had a hard time to have the right color scheme. The references are from a book "Arctic workhorse The RCMP Schooner St-Roch" written by James P. DELGADO.

    You are right, this is a bow thruster. A bow thruster is not of that era. It was supposed to go onto another boat.
    The pond where I go has a huge fountain in the middle. My skill to navigate with sail are poor. It will be used in special moments such as to avoid collision or near sinking.

    I usually manage to upload in the order I want my pictures.
    I've found that I have to drag them them into the upload box one at a time in the order that I want them, I wait until it's thumbnail appears before doing the next one.
    I have asked Stephen (Fireboat) our benevolent host if he can make it possible to re-arrange the order of the pictures after uploading them but I never had a satisfactory response to that request โ˜น๏ธ.

    Nice work Ygagnon, I envy your brother's ability to machine all those metal parts for you. What sort of boat is she? an auxiliary schooner of some sort, but is she some specific type of vessel?

    Cheers, Nerys

    Hi Ygagnon,

    I think To get the photos how you want them you will have to work out how you want them to show on the finished post.

    So the picture you want to see first in the final post you put on first.
    The picture you want to see second in the final post you put on second.
    And so on.

    Hopefully,

    It would be nice to know if a member would try this just to confirm i have it right.

    Martin555.
