    My Shed Find.
    Something different, eh...... How about a water-taxi? Small boat used for ferrying people around harbours, sightseeing, etc. Lots of them around - almost all converted hulls of a wide variety of kinds, so your hull would fit nicely. It's quite wide, which is an advantage. Lots of images on the net... At 1/25th scale, your hull would make a 50ft boat. The advantage of 1/25th is that you can buy cheap Chinese railway passenger figures at that scale - 20 for a bit more than a fiver. Which really adds to the interest, and allows for lots of detail... Here is the Lark - a converted New England
    Lobster Boat
    which ran a ferry crossing on the Hudson river. And here is a partially built EeZeBilt model of it at 22 inches. The plans will be out when I can manage it...and finish the hull...๐Ÿ˜› For this model I have magnets built into the sides amidships. The carrying box will include a plug-together floating jetty, which will also have a magnet at the end, and so a perfectly aligned approach should dock the boat correctly at the end of the pier, ready for the next load of passengers...
