Well I've been trying to sort out my storage areas and found this Hull, but have no idea what type of vessel it is? I was given it many years ago and had forgotten it was in my collection, so I'm appealing for help in deciding what to make with it. It's 36" long with 8" beam. I've never worked with a molded plastic hull before so I'd appreciate any instructions in how to proceed and how to fix frames and bulkheads. I'd like to use either 6 or 12 volts as I have a decaperm and a hectoperm motor to choose from, and a good selection of batteries to choose from. Hopefully Colin.
Evenin' Colin, a nice 'roly-poly' hull you've got there 👍 I could imagine it as an Admiral's Barge or Pinnace 😉
Re frame fixing etc. I'll send you some pics of typical Dean's instructions for preparing glass fibre and plastic hulls. My experience of the 6V Decaperm in my Sea Scout was that it was decidedly sedate so it might suit a barge or pinnace style!? Cheers, Doug 😎
Young at heart - slightly older in other places 😉 Cheers Doug
