In the water! - Posted: 4th Jul 2017
I have found the new benefit of having a hot tub in the garden!
Pleased to see her finally in the water. Allowing for battery weight, additional deck gear etc I can see how she is sitting.
And I'm pleased to see my fibre glassing is watertight!

Now to get her out and turn the bubbles on for a quick relax!

Ready for paint! - Posted: 3rd Jul 2017
Managed to get the prop shaft glasses in today after adding a brass coupling joint my dad made for me on the metal lathe.
This has allowed me to screw down the gantry and net hauler. I will be putting her in the water tomorrow to get some idea of water line and ballast. Then I will be able to paint the hull.
The deck will and bulk works will also be painted.
Also started work on the v doors for the trawl and some other little bits today. More updates soon!

Hi Graham, Pardon my ignorance but what's a prop shaft glass??
and I believe you might mean 'bulwarks' 😉
cheers Doug 😎

Sorry glassed has been autocorrected to glasses!
Response by RNinMunich on the 3rd Jul 2017
Aha! Understand 👍 Windows thinks it knows better than we do 😡
Even if it has no idea what we are talking about 😉

Wet Wednesday afternoon quiz! - Posted: 28th Jun 2017
I'm making some of the deck detail today..
Just for fun and to get the brain working what have I made using the following?

Copper wire
A raw plug
PVA board
Some plumbing pipe (two different widths

Answer later tonight!!
Response by GrahamP74 on the 29th Jun 2017
Well they still need a little extra detail but a gas tank and a Co2 fire extinguisher
Response by RNinMunich on the 29th Jun 2017
Ah ha! 👍
Response by GrahamP74 on the 30th Jun 2017
Finished the detail and it wouldn't be right without some rust on the tank!!

Net drum - Posted: 25th Jun 2017
Wound the spare trawl onto the drum. Used an old washing bag that you put socks in! The material was soaked in PVA glue and orange poster paint. I have added some rings and sewn some thin thread in green and added some of the warp string too which I have frayed. Sprayed the whole thing in hair spray to hold together!

Winch - Posted: 24th Jun 2017
Wound the new warps onto the winch tonight while watching Glastonbury! Used a mix of green poster paint and PVA glue to stain the string. A lot of warps are wire with this green covering. Will add a little rust paint to some area so they look a little worn.

Build coming along well and this certainly looks authentic for a fishing vessel, and the rust will certainly help!

Deck - Posted: 22nd Jun 2017
Finished fitting the deck today. Not glued down yet but once it is the hull, deck and bull works can be painted.

Fibre glassing - Posted: 21st Jun 2017
Decided that this heat would make it an ideal day to pop on a mask and gloves and glass in some of the beams and beds! Added a coat to the gunnels and the transom too.
Also fitted the rudder, used some plumbing pipe which I glassed in.
Deck has also been started as well as the forward deck.

Blocks - Posted: 13th Jun 2017
A little bit of work on the blocks in the afternoon sun! Once set they will be sanded and an eye put in the top. Then the usual paint and rust treatment! Used 0.5mm PVA board
