Engine question - Posted: 10th Nov 2017
Just wondering if anyone can tell me what type of engine the NAXOS used - gasoline or diesel?
I once had a link to a website that featured a diy engine sound generator for marine use including various whistle sounds.
The sound samples were excellent. Now the website is gone. Does anyone use sound generators for their craft?
Response by Zdenek on the 10th Nov 2017
What I know about fishing boats of this type, they usually use diesel engines (approximately since WW II).
An experiment with foam board - Posted: 9th Nov 2017
I am going to try an experiment with foam board similar to a build that I ran across on the internet. It consists of making the keel and bulkheads with 1/4" foam board or a double thickness if it is thinner. The board that I have will require two thicknesses. If all else fails, it will proof my plans that they are readonably accurate.
The inner gunwales and the sheer clamps will be clear pine.

Trace the outline of the part, cut out and stick with adhesive spray onto foamboard and cut out.
Kere is the partial keel which I labelled "K1". Will post pictures as I progress.

Full Size Plans - NAXOS - Posted: 4th Nov 2017
Well, I took a stab at making my own FSP today. Talk about scratch building!
Not having a large size plotter, I used the online service of and split/enlarged available plans onto 12 sheets legal size paper (8.5 X 17 inches). Was then able to print on my home printer and stick the whole thing together with tape. I feel that I am real close because the LOA on the plan is a little over 31 inches.
No, I cannot read the small text on the plan, but what the heck..I couldnt read it anyhow. Read somewhere that it was actually Hungarian - if whoever wrote that knew what he was talking about.
Will do the 2nd sheet tomorrow.

Well, finally got the 2nd sheet split up, printed and taped together. Everything seems to compare on both sheets - at least as good as a pair of 75year old eyes with reading glasses can measure.🤓

Quite a common method of support, it steadies the bottom end.
Response by RNinMunich on the 4th Nov 2017
Yep, quite right Wingcoax 👍, it's called a 'Skeg'. Also protects rudder and props from damage by grounding.
@ hecrowell; can thoroughly recommend an A3 scanner/copier/printer for such jobs, don't cost the earth these days and in the long run much much cheaper than print shops, never used one myself!
BTW: thanks for the credits!😉
Where did you read about Hungarian? It's Czech!
Confirmed by a native speaker.
Cheers Doug 😎
Response by hecrowell on the 4th Nov 2017
Can't quite recall about the Hungarian, but I read it somewhere among my searches. It was quite obvious that the remark was not right.
Actually, my printer is a scanner/fax and can handle A3, A4, US Letter and US Legal, so I may be on the right track.
NAXOS - Fishing Boat - Posted: 3rd Nov 2017
This will be a scratch build of a fishing boat. Her original name is NAXOS but not sure what I will name my version of her.

Naxos is a Greek island, the largest of the Cyclades group, so likely she fished the Aegean Sea.
Since the plan seems to come from Bratislava, capital of Slovakia, I am assuming the plan language is Slovakian.

These plans have been obtained online, so I hopefully will not be in violation of any copyrights...if I am, I will remove them immediately.

And one more:

It is possible to download the plan and some lictures from the build. There are also frames, the keel and some parts, re-drawn so that you can print them on A4.
It is a little unusual way of downloading but it is possible.
Response by RNinMunich on the 3rd Nov 2017
Hi Zdenek, thanks for helping out again👍
I agree with you, doesn't look much different in the basic construction!
Na zdraví! Doug 😎

I use the sound module on my ship from the Slovak manufacturer to give her a preview of what sound it has.
