    This time I want to show the process after removing the now sanded hull. You get a first view of having me removing the frames and starting to fill lead into the wooden hull. in the last photo, you can appreciate the benefits of removing all frames from within the hull. The surface inside the hull is ready for further processing.

    Trying to learn to use this forum properly I am publishing a video that shows an experiment I did to find out how fast the stepper motor could turn. I am using in my model of the sailboat
    carina
    2 stepper motors like the one shown in the video to work as a winch to control the position of the sails in a system solution where I am realizing this my own way to implement the sheets as shown on the original sailboat Endeavour. This requires my sheet control system to control the length of the sheet of the mainsail i.e. over a range of 8.3 meters. This requires the drum which is turned by the stepper motor to make 21 full turns. Details will be published in my report from scratch of building my

    Tag Helmut, Just left click on the Adobe icon so the Media Gallery opens with the larger icon. Left click on [Download], top left corner of the media gallery window. Windows will then ask you if you want to Save or Open the file. left click 'Open', your pdf reader will open it. You can then save it to wherever you want. If you are using a 'Dumbphone' - I don't knowπŸ€” I don't! Cheers, Doug 😎

    I might be foolish, but I am not able to open the pdf files I have attached myself. What do I have to do so that I do not get to see just the image indicating it is a pdf file I have attached, but the pdf file itself? Second question: What I would like to do is that what is in the pdf file would appear online on the screen and I would be adding photos to the text I the way my attached pdf file does contain? When hitting the button on top "Post New Build Update" all I found out what I can do is to write text as I do here and attache a pdf file as I have done previously.

    Yes, but it is a little bit of history πŸ˜‰ it's a MabuchI RE-56 and I connected it to a battery and the motor worked, after 40 years!

    I've got this boat from my brother in law 40 years ago! He had start to built it, but get tired. I found it when we moved about a year ago. Then I started to restore it and make it ready for it's first launching 😊 That is what this blog is going to describe.
