Ketch Irene - Posted: 29th Mar 2017
Irene still sailing but very much altered, as she burnt down to the water line. My model will be as in 1930s. Built 1909 in Bridgwater, my home town, that is the inspiration. I have a few photos, a rough drawing & her measurements. I sometimes draw my own plans or as this time work from the drawing & photos. I am using a two sided home made scale rule, red for drawing & black on other side for model.

First photo a hit & miss vent, cut to make gratings, painted streaky brown. This is not my idea, but its a good one.
The hawser hole finished & the stern ready for filler & paint. Will finish hull paint before completing topgallant rail.
Although I have a stand still using the pillow, as it makes a good pin cushion.
