    25.11 20
    Yesterday managed to trim the second upper hull side which had been fixed the day before. Also sanded the transom flush and smooth. I have decided I will affix a mahogany overlay here to give an upgrade from the kit. I always feel that with end grain exposed, it can be sanded smooth but even after careful finishing it can grin through sometimes so a flush covering of mahogany sheet with prevent this. None of the upgrades I am doing are a criticism of the kit as purchased but this boat is so worthy of a bit of luxury and I am enjoying the build at every stage. I must say, since I began modelling in the late 50’s this is one of the kits that has satisfied me most in its built. Perhaps when I was working, with limited spare time, I always needed to get a build finished asap. Now I have time to dally a bit more on detail.
    With the main hull now completed I felt it was time to fit the stern tube and this I did yesterday. I had delayed this to now because the 350mm tube as specified in the kit does protrude a bit from the bottom of the hull and with all the bending and shaping necessary to get to this stage I thought it would have been a bit vulnerable. The motor I had fixed before fitting the hull sides when I had space to work.
    With the diameter of the tube being about 7mm but the width of the keel being 5mm ply it was necessary to put 1mm shims on the side of the keel before fitting the doublers so that the tube fed through the keel with a snug fit and did not have to be bored out. Possibly a bit late to be telling you this, but I had done that before I started this blog!
    I had drilled a small hole in the top of the tube as an oiler hole and this will be covered by a brass sleeve when running. See pic. Not in place after fitting the tube but I did not want to get epoxy on it! With this completed I have started the superstructure and fitted just the cabin fore and aft formers. I always use a square to ensure that all is straight. Again, these components fitted the slots and curve of the deck perfectly. Here I have used some small clamps where the tension is created by a rubber band(s) and are so effective in this sort of instance.
    More later…….

    Martin, I bought them somewhere, some years ago, cannot remember where, but have been useful in this instance. Used them quite a bit in model aircraft where some of the spring clip cramps would crush balsa.

    I do like the idea of 'doubling' up the skin with mahogany, nicely varnished , she will look really good and give that 'superior' feeling to the finished model. Those clamps are interesting, I'm always looking at and trying different types ,but I've never seen any like those.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Thank you for your comment Nerys, regret have no idea where i got the cramps, I am a creature of buying things that look as though they might be useful and eventually they are! Surprisingly a lot of 'cheapjack' tools are useful for modelling and are worth a bit of time spent fettling them.

    I have just been able to fix one side of the upper hull skin which runs from the bow to midships. This was, perhaps, a bit trickier than fixing the lower skins due to them being shorter and therefore not so easily curved to the shape of the bow, it was however fixed and the second side has been fixed today. In the meantime, I spent time on making some more of the deck paraphernalia, stern rails, fish boxes and crab pots.
    Remember that these details are not included in the kit and are being made from my from my own β€˜design’ and from pictures of Cee King online.
    The stern rails were constructed from 2mm brass rod and built using a jig made from an old piece of chipboard. Holes were drilled full depth into the board and the 20mm uprights were inserted into the holes. The upper rail was then able to be clamped to the uprights and then the joints soldered one by one. It was able to be removed from the jig in β€˜one piece’ to my astonishment and delight. I will drill the deck appropriately before painting starts.
    The crab pots again from using examples in photographs and are simply constructed.
    The base, about 50 x 35mm has six holes drilled in it, three per side and the bent loops bent from snake inners from a derelict model glider. This material bends quite easily, and each end is inserted into opposite holes on the base, three per pot, a drop of cynano on the underside of the board at each hole. Next, I tried to use the same material for the side bars and stick it with CA but this really did not catch at all.
    I persevered and turned to using cocktail sticks for the side rails and they were fixed to the hoops by putting a dab of hot melt glue onto the three hoops and pressing the wooden stick onto the glue spots. This seems to have been successful. The cocktail sticks were the remains after I had used each point for my wooded nails. When I can get governmental permission to go to the shops again, I will buy some catering grade hair nets for the netting. After I had made one prototype I made four more and stuck four bases together with double sided tape and drilled all four at once on the drill press.
    I will not attempt to make the trap in the netting and will just cover the whole skeleton structure with the netting. Obviously, my fishing will be unproductive, but I do not think that our model yacht pond is crawling with crabs anyway.
    The Fish boxes were made from scraps of ply and made to a 1/12 scale after a cardboard box in the garage that I thought might be about the right size.
    The boxes and the pots will be stained to give an authentic appearance.
    More next time. Geoff.L

    Martin, Thanks for suggestion, I have tried the fruit mesh, but it is quite loosely woven so tends to disintegrate, and of course is usually bright red or orange. Will check out the hair nets. Thanks for being interested in my project.

    Thank you. I can really recommend this kit, the wood supplied is flawless and the laser cutting accurate and so easy to free the parts without harm. It fits together well and is a joy to work on. will keep on posting because I believe that this firm is producing some good kits to encourage new builders.

    I mentioned when I started to write this blog that although the kit has a Norfolk name, it does not represent the crabbers used on that coast. I have searched the web for pictures of fishing boats and the nearest likeness I can find is CEE KING Whitby. This is a sea angling charter boat taking anglers offshore to fish in the North Sea, as the Kit manufacturer is based in Bolton I rather think that the inspiration comes from the Northern ports rather than East Anglia. However, I will be using the CEE KING as my inspiration for deck detail although will not model this boat accurately. Please have a look at their website on facebook https://www.facebook.com/WHITBYCEEKING.
    As I have said the kit is basically a nice wooden model to build and lends itself to imaginative development toward being a semi scale model.

    Progress achieved over the last few days has been the addition of the hull side skins which have been glued in place and held during curing with wooden nails. The pics shows the hull sanded and with one coat of sanding sealer to keep this light-coloured wood clean during the rest of the build. The construction of the model gives a very rugged hull and I have been able to use an electric detail sander for the finishing.
    The transom has yet to be sanded flush and I think I will treat the boat to the luxury of a mahogany transom.
    Also pictured is progress made with some of the other bits, white plastic turned to aluminium, the beginnings of a crab pot, inter deck steps and hardwood cabin door. (Plywood in the kit.) and the beginnings of two life rafts.

    To clear some thing up, I spend alot of time in North Norfolk, Blakeney in particular. Moored there is a small open launch called the Teal.(see photos) It has a clinker built hull, I decided to model it but as my kits are designed to be easy to build I adapted it to have a single chine hull (The green boat in photo). A friend of mine liked the model but thought it would look better with a shelter, using the same hull as the Blakeney I added a shelter and so the Morston was born.(Blue boat) It is in no way a scale model but a product of my imagination. Hope this helps.
    For people not familiar with Norfolk, Morston is the next village to Blakeney.

    Thank you for your comment, and your explanation of the origin of the design. I must add that this kit is indeed a pleasure to build and goes together well. But as I have explained the nearest I could find was the CEE KING out of Whitby and have used this as a basis for inspiration and I am pleased to say that the Morston, using suggested detail from Cee King will make up into a superb model to sail and enjoy. I was born in North Norfolk and as a boy spent a lot of time at Morston, Blakeney and all of the Norfolk seaside towns. And of course the Crab boats I am familiar with fish out from Cromer and Sheringham are are indeed open clinker built boats. Sadly this industry now has to cope with their fishing grounds becoming protected by Nature conservators, that is the chalk reef offshore. Thank you again for your information.

    A bit more progress over the last couple of days, have now fixed the motor permanently and put in location lugs for battery.
    Have sanded the hulls sides ready to fit the outer skin and tried a dry run before fixing, which was performed later today. The foam rest for the hull comes by courtesy of the NHS, supplied when a hip replacement is performed and is a leg rest for sleeping. I have two of these now, so they are coming in useful for model boats.
    The more I progress with this kit I realise that, although it may appear to be a simple kit, and it is, the more I appreciate how accurately it is cut and designed. The hull sides may seem to be cut to an odd shape but when offered up to the hull, they fit perfectly with just the right amount of overhand for trimming. As the upper sides at the bow have to seat on top of the lower sides it is important to fix the lower side so that it follows the deck line and I have used map pins to allow the line to be followed. The skin then fits very well, a bit of a bend at the bow but have used temporary fixings until the glue sets. (Screws with washers.) May have time tomorrow to fit the other side.

    HAKITS Morston.
    I was attracted to this kit because it is a wooden build and I just love working with wood. 27 Inches long, 8.5 inches beam
    Also it is named after a favourite village of my native Norfolk, on the coast and is a fishing village there. I must say that this kit is sold as an inshore crab boat model, but in all my time in Norfolk I have never seen a crab boat like this. Traditional Norfolk Crab boats are open clinker-built boats. I will say later how I have finished modelling it as a fishing boat.
    The kit comes simply packed in a plastic sleeve filled with the laser cut sheets of birch ply for the formers and lite ply for the hull sides, decking and superstructure, the handbook and two small packs of fittings, window frames etc.
    The cutting is absolutely accurate and the components fit exactly to the mm. Using a sharp knife, the parts are easily released from the ply sheets and require a minimum of cleaning up. I must admit that the soot associated with laser cutting is a bit irritating but it is small price to pay for such accuracy as we have now come to expect from all wood kits. The kit comes with a minimum of fittings, so prop and shaft and rudder gear need to be at hand before building commences.
    To date I have completed the main hull shape from the formers with keel and deck fitted. The rear hatch gives access to the rudder shaft and its servo. Four rather novel bolts are supplied for securing the hatch. See Pic. The underskin fitted so far shows a technique I have used with wooden hulls in the past using β€˜wooden nails’. These are the ends of cocktail sticks dipped in glue and tapped home through a 2mm hole into a 1.5 mm pilot hole. This means that they can be sanded flush with no filling needed. I use them where angles are too sharp to use spring clamps or where a taped strip would not be sufficient.
    The instruction book suggests using thick and thin Cyano but I find this messy to use and a nasal irritant so I use it as little as possible. With a nice wooden hull like this I use Gorilla wood glue which I find excellent. I will use cyano for a β€˜quick fix’ but that is all. (Used to be called glue sniffing!!)
    The pic shows the motor just placed in the position it will be fixed. An MFA 500 with 2.5 :1 gearbox driving a 35mm three bladed brass prop. Viper 15 ESC. More later over the coming weeks…..

    Check your kit, mine had one inner hull side (Item 2 on page 1 in handbook) wrongly cut, I have telephoned them and advised, but may not yet have got the correction into production. It just needs the lugs adjusted to fit by trimming by about one eighth of an inch, any other questions please PM me

    I had never heard of Hakits, but after reading your post, googled them. What a nice range of reasonably priced simple wooden kits they produce. I think they could be recommended to any beginner.
    Thank you for bringing them to our attention.

    I am hoping you can help what size rubber is required as the instructions say small rudder assembly?
    Thanks in advance

    Totally agree cyno isn't a good permanent adhesion solution, "stick" with Aliphatic for wood, a solvent type for plastic and resin for fibreglass.

    How is your build going, would be interested to hear, do you have the 20 inch kit or the larger 27 inch?
