Clinker Potting and Crab Boat by Ballast Lieutenant   Posted: 1 day ago
Thanks for your mail Robert and I look forward to the hull arriving. Your Clinker Crabber is a typical south east coast beach boat like the ones in the picture from Hastings invariably had a foremast and mizzen mast. The foremast was for carry hauling gear and lights and the mizzen had a sail to assist the boat to lie into wind and tide when hauling pots. Notice the simple wheelhouses. They were lovely old boats with loads of character as your is. My profile picture is the boat I am building.

My first boat!! by NickW Seaman   Posted: 2 days ago
I popped into Huddersfield Society of Model Engineers, they have an outdoor swimming pool for the boats, cater for rc trucks etc and have a working train for visitors to ride on bu it's the boat part that i'll be getting involved with. There is one closer to me but it's a lake and quite first sail will be Saturday when i'll join the club :-)

How many is to Many by WorcesterModelBoatCl Seaman   Posted: 6 days ago
That is a scary question to ask. I think if you dont know the answer off the top of your head is possibly to many. I had a database of my fleet, all indexed with setups, condition, if they needed any work, ones i wouldnt sell ones i might sell, what i might like in the future. Thats long out of the window now. Is there a too many number? I dont want to start adding my collection up, its well over 50, and 45 of those would be ready to sail at a moments notice. This could become like an AA meeting, Hi Im Bob and I have a problem......
