Will do Ron - have to clean most of the models first - not been used for a while and mostly in a state of disrepair having been shipped to UK and back plus 8 local moves....
So perhaps over the weekend.
The 1/1 shots are a little more difficult as I was only able to get aboard a trawler being refurbished some time ago and watch the re caulking being done. Did not have a camera with unfortunately. Hard to get a decent shot on the currently working ones with the deck clutter/grime from sardines etc until they are pulled up on the slipway and cleaned which is quite infrequently. There is also only one F/B cruiser here at the moment which has a utilitarian non slip deck as its used for fishing charters. Will see what can be done when visiting Hout Bay in a few weeks time where there are a lot more boats (3 hour drive away)
As a matter of interest a friend there has two WW2 Miami Crash Boats one of which he is currently re-furbishing and two 60's Ford class SDB's all being ex SAN. He runs a tour boat to Seal Island off Hout Bay. Its a steel hull 82' long based on the hull lines of the 63' Miami's with a different superstructure which he built himself, takes about 120 Pax at 15 or so knots with two V16 Detroit Diesels at max 900rpm. (He was in a hurry to complete so used the spare set of Miami shafts & props which would twist like a pretzel at anything over that). Its featured in his ad. The other pics being the start of the Miami refurbishment.
