Carry case. by DodgyGeezer Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 hours ago
"It's not very heavy and it won't get wet!" Unless you never put it down on wet grass, and drain and then towel your boats after use before putting them back, it will. Be sure to get all the water out of the prop-tube.... " I can't be arsed with fancy carpentry. " No carpentry involved. The material is like cardboard, and you just cut it out with a Stanley knife and fold it. Takes between 10 and 30 mins to make a box from scratch... " And what IS Correx? " Sometimes known as 'twin-flute', it's the stuff estates agent's boards are made of, amongst a myriad of other uses. A twin-walled polypropylene rather like a kind of cardboard made of plastic. Very tough, feather-light and impact-resistant. Self-coloured (many colours available) and completely waterproof. Needs no framing - the sides are strong enough on their own... See the link for full description, place to get it and plans...

PS Waverley by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
Hi martin, Didn't Marky build a Waverley paddler a little while ago? Maybe he has plans. Here's some info and pics anyway. https://www.wikiwand.com/en/PS_Waverley Cheers, Doug 😎

PS Waverley by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
Hi all, my chum has bought a very large hull of the above ship, but it has no details whatever and absolutely nothing above gunnel level. Can anyone recommend trustworthy plans for the vessel, Please? Cheers, Martin

inaccurate plans by steve-d Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 6 days ago
Not happy to find that 2 of the frames are not the correct shape. I've added a scan of the frames. There should be an even change of spacing of the frame profiles. I think in shipbuilding terms they call it 'fair'. You can see there is not an even transition at frames 12 and 52.

Veron Vosper F.P.B. 52" by jonryan Seaman   Posted: 6 days ago
Hello everyone, Disclosure: I'm not a sailor type! I fly things (badly...), but have acquired, as part of a loft clearance, an unstarted kit of the above. No idea what it's worth! Any interest? Looks in pretty good nick, unstarted as far as I can see, plans, build sheets &c, &c. Pics to follow.

Maree III sharpie 10 Rater by steve-d Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 7 days ago
Maree III is a 10 Rater Sharpie design by A Wilcock dating back to 1958. MM plan MM/504. I first built her in 1996 but as with all these things family life got in the way or changed and I stopped taking her out. At some point I must have sold her but I can’t remember how or when. A few weeks back I decided to build something again and found the original plans under the bench so where better to start than there. I also found the MM Plans catalogue which is how I found the first date (Plan ordered 06/08/1996 pencilled in the margin). The original design does not have a bulb keel but I have decided mine will but not with the narrow carbon fin as used on the latest boat designs. She is also not for competition so I plan to include a cabin top for a more ‘scale’ appearance. Must give my thanks early on for the help I have had from David Creed who researched some old plans to find me a suitable design for the bulb keel but with a quite broad fin. As a result I have now made a plug for the bulb and a box in which to make the silicone mould. I have also cut out all the rib moulds so I can start laying up the hull. It is a monocoque design so these are just to build the hull shape. There will then only be a couple of ribs around the keel mount and mast step to add strength in those areas. Been buying materials but it is not easy as the plans have very little info on the sails and rigging.

USGC Island class fg hull. by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 9 days ago
Hi, I'm up for one. I might build her as the original VT 108' PB design. See pic. On the other hand; the CG Cutter would make a change. If you can get this off the ground a copy of your plans would be most welcome. Cheers, Doug 😎

USGC Island class fg hull. by epmbcmember Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 10 days ago
I wish to build a USCG Island class cutter. I have a full set of plans but I am not too brilliant at making hulls from scratch. I have found a possible source, MTBHulls of Gibralta, of getting a fibre glass hull at 1/48 scale but they need an order of 4 to produce one. They produce many different hulls but not this one, hence the requirement for 4 to make it viable to make a new hull. So I am looking for 3 other model makers who may be interested in buying one of these hulls at approx. £55 each plus any cost for me to post them on or deliver. The Island class cutter is 110 feet long, which would make a model just over 2 foot long, and based on a Vosper Thornycroft design but built in the States. I believe there were about 80 built of which 35 remain in service. There are many pictures of them on the internet which is where I got the plans from but I am happy to copy the plans if anyone is interested.

HELP needed re: Graupner Neptun by Ron Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 days ago
No plans. No fittings. Just the parts I have been able to glue-up here. The containers and toys were added to see if they might be used for freight. These General Freighters are used for multiple cargos but I have no Cranes. Thinking of just adding hatches with tie downs. Any suggestions? Approximately what scale?

Solent class lifeboat by Andy1 Apprentice   Posted: 24 days ago
😁Hi all, I am new to this website, I have recently received boat plans for a 1/12 scale Solent class lifeboat of which I have started to build, the plans are dated for September 1976, I suspect they were originally for a kitt. My question is what size should the propellers be? As the model is going to spend most of it's time out of the water much detail would be most appreciated. Many thanks Andy.

Darby One Design hydro... by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 24 days ago
Dave , I made it. I found plans in a 1954 copy of the Motor Boat Annual I borrowed from the National Powerboat Museum at Pitsea, before the stupid bastards on the council threw it away in preference for mud huts for snotty nosed brats to go mad in. Only today I finally got some pictures from the Oulton Broad club with pics of the Darby boasts I hadn't seen, which show that the top cowling was always built a little higher than the plans show, so I shall be making some slight changes to the fixed portions. The photos show the fixed sections to be done with stringers and fabric, a la aeroplane fuselage. You can't buy decent older powerboats as kits or ready mades. Nobody gives a toss about speedboat models in this country, alas. Even though we had a very busy world of inboard race boats at one time. Now, all is boring outboards. The 1500 cc inboard classes gave us a lot of great racing just pre and post-War. Here are three in one race. "WHO'S DARBY?", Dawn, a Whippet class and Miss Windermere, another One design, like the Oulton Broad One design, all three are 1500 cc class boats. There wqere also boats of under 950cc and even a Singer Cadet class with a Singer Le Mans 1100 cc engine. The Singer Commodore had a 6 cylinder 1500, a gorgeous engine. Both Singers were designed by Percy See at Shoreham and had diagonal reverse clinker construction. I have plans if anyone is interested. Cheers, Martin
