Ballast - Posted: 27th Apr 2018
So I’ve just tested the hulk in the water and she is sitting pretty! I filled the keel with cement which has brought her down to the water line. Tested the electrics too and she moves nicely... once the cement has dried I will give the hull a seal of paint on the inside and then it’s deck on time!
Quick mock up! - Posted: 22nd Apr 2018
Got the main deck beams fitted today and the servo holder. Offered up the wheelhouse and gantry which have been made during the winter to see how they look!
Pretty happy with so far!

Thanks, winch is made too, just the forward gantry really and a paint job along with detail for the deck..
Quiet month - Posted: 22nd Apr 2018
A two week holiday, promotion at work and getting the spring cleaning done has meant little time for building in March..
However the suns out and as I said to my wife it’s the perfect weather for fibre glassing!!
Spending some time this weekend fitting the deck beams and shelves so the structure below deckline is finished!

It's nice to get the little jobs out of the way and have them ready to install them at the right time.Helps in the long run.Makes construction go a little faster.
Response by GrahamP74 on the 29th Mar 2018
Totally agree! Also when you only have a few moments between other jobs!
Gantry - Posted: 4th Mar 2018
Constructed the aft gantry from wooden square dowel and 1mm plastic. This will be sprayed white and then rusted..

Wheel house looks the detail
Wheel house construction - Posted: 27th Feb 2018
I have started to make the wheelhouse from 3mm flexboard. This is easy to cut and fix together. The door has been constructed with wooden coffee sticks (thank you cafe Nero!)

This is another scratch build fishing boat.

The hull is a models by design Cygnus GM33. 16th scale.

This one will be a pure trawler. I am going for an aft wheelhouse this time!

The prop shaft and rudder have been purchased but all other running gear will be shared with Emily P III.
