Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by sam Petty Officer   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi, Great build blog for Mascotte, and a fabulous end product! Harking way back if I can, to the sail control for Mascotte. I am about to embark on a build of Cariad (or at least a pilot cutter similar to Cariad ). I'm trying to figure out the sail control for the two foresails. The front one overlaps the second, how did you get one to move over the other when tacking? A fellow club member has successfully built a spinnaker control for an IOM which has some of the features needed - treating the front sail as a spinnaker. But i'm open to any ideas. Sam

Old outboard motor... by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
GRP dinghy, ancient outboard separated into it's halves. The dinghy was made by a company that had done a Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter which a friend was working on before he died suddenly. He decided that he wouldn't use the dinghy and gave it to me. I was thinking of using it for a mini steam plant as a river launch, but that's too far in the future. I think I may have a suitable dolly for the boatman. Martin

Thanks Ron appreciate that👍 Looks like it'll be a while before I get that far but I'm sure I'll be coming back to you. Not the least because I am converting a (badly built🤔) static model to RC and have an ambition to make the sails work as well. I know, NUTS!😁 But then, aren't we all just a little 😉 Cheers, Doug 😎

Brillo 👍 Hat off Sir 😉 May be asking your help some time about re-rigging the mess of a fish cutter I inherited. Just took her apart and started renovating the hull. Wotta mess 🤔😲 More filler than wood and stern made from a cardboard tape reel 😡 Last pic is roughly what she should look like!

Have got the main sail finally fitted after some minor length adjustment on some of the rigging Pic 1 shows the hand made curtain rings made using 1mm brass rod. Pic 2 shows mid way through threading the rope along the boom. Ron

I find that when the boat is nearing completion I don't always contemplate that there is something I haven't thought through.Just want to get the boat finished and on the water. You're doing a fabulous job on this boat.Waiting to see it on the water.I have been following the construction.Excellant workmanship.

Today i have made a start fitting the sails starting with the jib and stay sail just have the sail control wire to fix to them. it has taken most of today just to fit these two as some changes had to be made to some of the rigging lines i had already done but this is my fault trying to get to far ahead of myself rather than being patient.

You could have only made one oar as pilots always sculled one oar on the transom. I hope you are satisfied with your model, should be.

im back on the job again now ( fingers crossed ) no more flare ups . have got the stand for the ships boat built, varnished and fixed to the boat now, i had to change position of the fixing point for the ships boat because of the sail control wire. I have also got the oars for the ships boat made and given them there first coat of varnish, these were made using some 3mm pine dowel and a scrap piece of 4x2 beech planking strip. have now started on the canvas cover for the ships boat.

Hi all afraid I had to but the builds on hold for a while again had another flare up with my health but things are settling down again now so hopefully I can get back to finishing this boat and enjoying sailing her for the first time. Ron
