    Hi Neil,
    The guys here are a great bunch as you know.
    We all enjoy making our models and talking about them so if you can manage both it will be really great.
    We are here to help if we can so just shout.

    Hi Neil,
    I like your attitude, 'I'd rather be posting on here', please do, we need all the posts we can get, to provoke as much discussion as possible. Building boats is just as, if not more, important, but it's discussion we urgently need to wake this sleeping giant up again and make it the super interesting place it once was.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Hi Stephen

    Not embarrassing at all.......I think I have a couple floating around as it's been so long in getting to this point πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ€£
    I think I'd rather be posting on here than building which is my problem πŸ˜†
    Hopefully get some new posts and move this on some more
    Cheers Neil

    Hi Neil, as the onwards and upwards didn't help you let's try something else instead. Ten dollar question what are you building? Is this a kit, scratch-built, or whatever, what is the hull made from, plastic, fiberglass, or timber? Is the hull complete with fittings, as in wash-ports, hawser holes, prop-shaft, rudder, etc? I think a few photos would definitely help to clarify your present predicament and be very helpful for us outsiders offering advice. What will be your power source, (I would love you to say STEAM,) but that is probably unlikely as I do appreciate it is a little expensive. So basically the situation is a little more information please, and I shall consult the oracle on your behalf. Regards Gary.

    Hi Neil,

    Sorry, that's embarrassing, just as I was posting I did think I hope there isn't an existing blog. I'll check it out.

    Cheers,
    Stephen.

    Onwards and upwards is a great motto I just need to master the Onwards bit as opposed to the upwards struggle of knowing what to do.....or over thinking 🀣🀣🀣
    Good to see you're in agreement with Rick and to go for the hull first then the rest later. A real good point on spraying and hopefully the weather holds for the next month or so.....but it is the UK πŸ€”
    I'm going with both of you and hopefully get something done this weekend.
    Cheers Neil

    Hi Neil,

    For my 2 cents worth why not start a build log then we can follow along, just an idea.

    Cheers,
    Stephen.

    Hi Neil, and not sure which way to go, that is easy and there is only one answer to that question. Onwards and Upwards my friend, onwards and upwards in some sort of logical order. I would also take into account the weather is changing and getting colder, if you are paint spraying outside then do it sooner rather than later. The order you build is entirely up to you and very much your choice, though normally I would say sort the hull first, followed by whatever goes inside it, then maybe the deck followed by the superstructure and fittings. It really doesn't matter about the order it goes together, as long as it ends up as a boat in one piece. Onwards and Upwards Neil, don't forget. Regards, Gary.

    Hi Rick
    Thanks for the reply and guidance which I'll be taking onboard, as mulling over its the most sensible route.
    Finishing off the hull also gives me some more time to figure out the best layout for electrics based on all the blogs.....no point in reinventing the wheel 😊
    Thanks again much appreciated
    Neil
