Cabin detail part 3 (instrument panels) by Joe727 Admiral   Posted: 18 days ago
Hello, I think I read in one of your posts that you said you were a better builder than skipper, I always say that about myself. I enjoy sailing at the pond but then look forward getting back home to continue building. Your work is exceptional and I enjoy seeing you make everything. Wish I had a lathe like yours but have done without for years as they are beyond my budget. Keep the good work! Joe

Book on Sailing Barges by Joe727 Admiral   Posted: 21 days ago
Chris, Thank for the information, I will look into that book. I started in RC Boating but building and racing several classes of sailboats, including several US1Meter class. Being a much better builder than skipper, I was drawn to schooners that many club members had. Got interested in working sailcraft due to the history and the slower, power of these craft. The Gaff Rigged Handbook by Jihn Leather is one of my favorite build guides. Yes, I really like Gaff Rigging. This book was great for lots of rigging details and sails... See photo example. Joe

Book on Sailing Barges by Nerys Lieutenant   Posted: 21 days ago
There are many excellent books on Thames Sailing Barges, but for the modeller, I think 'Handbook of Sailing Barges' by F.S.Cooper and John Chancellor is one of the best. Fred Cooper was a well known Barge Skipper, John Chancellor, a former Merchant Navy Officer, lived with his family on the sailing barge Viper for many years. An accomplished artist, he illustrated this book with excellent line drawings of every aspect of the rig, deck fittings and construction details. There are usually copies for sale on Amazon and Abe Books. Nerys

ESSO CADILLAC by oldcodger Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
I’ve always wanted to build a WW11 oil tanker of the type my father skippered during the war. It’s named after a tanker he left to go on leave. The crew didn't want him to leave as he would take their luck. It lies off the west coast of Scotland, the captain, a friend of the family, going down with her. It's not the actual Cadillac as it was an older ship, artistic license!

The Skipper and Crew! by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
