Lively based on yard drawings, Cox&Co Falmouth, built 1912, and on station around the Fal estuary. Very similar to Searcher by Vic Smeed, in fact I would think Lively was his inspiration! The model is to 1:20 scale, 33" oal, bread and butter construction, I had lots of offcut pieces of 1" balsa blocks, then the rest is traditional. Powered by a 380 sized motor thro' an aero gearbox at 3:1, 6Ah lead acid battery and lots of lead ballast, working lights, NB, no navigation lights, there is a picture in Kings Cutters, obviously only on station daylight hours, a novel concept now! Again a steady model for steering competitions! Currenty under construction , Active, a sister launch of 1911, to a scale of 1:12, to be steam powered, 54" oal engine, reversing Stuart D10, boiler Scotch type(return tube) --- progress is very slow!
