Didn't Robbob do the same on his magnificent Fireboat?
Not sure about the up and down though.
Cheers, Doug 😎

Based on the kit Ayton Cross by Mobile Marine and dedicated to my two grandsons. I have added a working winch for towing aft, two working radars off the mast , running/ navigation, towing , wheelhouse and deck lights. Raboesch 19x22 bow thruster and sound system from Component Shop representing twin deisels. The two main 15amp ESC's are Electronize (unfortunately out of business now). The hull is GRP with wooden superstructure.

Christmas present last year, built over a couple of months of weeknights and days off. I’m real pleased with her, the kit was well thought out and the instructions and documentation were more than adequate to get her built. Krick has done a fine job of resurrecting the old Robbe line. I need to add ballast to the stern and rig/flag the mast, but for all intents and purposes she’s done, ready to play.

Royal Daffodil ex OVERCHURCH
After a complete refurb the Overchurch was renamed the Royal Daffodil.
My model depicted here is scratch built on fiberglass hull to 1/48 scale.
She now rests in my workshop next to the original Daffodil circa 1918 after she gained the "Royal" status for her role in the raid on Zebruggee in WW1 1918 together with her sister ship the Iris.
The current Royal Daffodil rests in Vittoria Dock Birkenhead laid up and will not again see any service again.

HMS DAFFODIL 1918 later to become Royal Daffodil
HMS Daffodil fitted with armour for WW1 raid on Zeebrugge in 1918.
Scratch built on fiberglass hull. No plans, just from old photos. The Mersey Ferry requisitioned by Admiralty and later to become Royal Daffodil in recognition of her actions at the Zeebrugge raid.
