Folding Bulwark????! by Toby Lieutenant   Posted: 8 days ago
Thank you. I have indeed scrolled to that and it is the file that downloaded without telling me it was or had so. In the index page 200 mentions collapsible bulwarks and this is found actually on page 212 in the pdf. It seems to refer to lifeboats and albeit a few pages several are blocked from view as are some of the drawings. I believe It said one has to be a member in order to see those pages. I don't think that the information concerns the ship's bulwark but rather the side of a ship's lifeboat. What was it that you read? Am I yet in the wrong link. T

Looking forward to it. I am coming up with the caravan, staying at Oakwood Farm Touring Park, and bringing 2, maybe 3 lifeboats with me to sail. It's in the diary, can't wait. Cheers, Dave W 😊

How to make Deck Fittings ? by Ron Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
What deck fittings does this boat require? I have no plans, pictures, or related information. Location of fittings. What you see is what I figure makes since. I know some railings and stairs are to scale, but it was what I had to work with without making major investments. Lifeboats have been carved and davits will be done soon.

Received this partially built kit, having been started over 20 years ago. Got it with no stairs, iifeboats, or deck equipment. Used H.O. Package of stairs, railings, and ladders to make what is seeing here. A friend is carving a couple lifeboats and I will make davits.

All hooked up, nowt happens... by rapidair65 Seaman   Posted: 3 months ago
Following this with some interest as I am about to convert my Arun lifeboat to a brushless set up using Turnigy Aerodrive motors and marine esc. Hoping to keep the two lead acid batteries for power as they make good ballast!

INTERNATIONAL MODEL BOAT SHOW by rolfman2000 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
I'm going on Friday, as I'm not too good with crowds in my wheelchair. I'm meeting up with a few lifeboat enthusiasts at 12 midday at the cafe, if anyone is interested. You never know, might meet some off here. Best wishes, Dave W 😊

A Tragic Tale Unfolds by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
A nice project, Neville. It must be terrible when a small community loses so many. The St. Abbs and Wells-next-the -Sea lifeboats were both lost and St. Abbs has fewer than a hundred inhabitants even today. I would love to be one of them. One of my favourite places. But a frightening reminder of what the sea can do. What are "Boat Days"? Martin
