    Hi again,
    I think most large DIY stores such as B and Q,and Jewsons etc have a section where you will find a rack containing many types of wood mouldings etc.That is where I would be tempted to look.They come in decent lengths,as well which is ideal for your use.By the way,what scale are you building her in?Anything less than 1/12th or 1/16th,that size may be to large and heavy for you.
    Good Luck

    I have been asked to put on a Model Lifeboat Display for the 150th anniversary of the Angle Pembrokshire Wales,Station, 11th and 12th AUGUST 2018

    this will be in a marquee close to the water so you can chose to display on or off the water or both NOTE SALT WATER!

    I am inviting Model Lifeboat owners from all over the country,and a few have expressed their interest already.
    Hoping to make it the biggest model Lifeboat Show in Wales for the year, and permission has been granted for all other model boat types to attend also

    There will be camping nearby, for tents motorhomes and caravans,and there is also a pub nearby and another in the village as well as a cafe for your food or possibly accomodation if wanted.

    I will be advertising it on various model boat websites and magazine. I would certainly like you to come if you can manage it.Set up day is the 10th,and I am sure if you wanted to come a day or so earlier we can arrange it for you.

    There will be at least three Historic Lifeboats attending,hopefully more,which will include the ex Angle Watson Lifeboat.
    The event will be part of the Angle Regatta Week, so many other types of craft will be attending
    There is also a Beer and Cider Festival at the same time,and Live Music


    Please give me a ring on 01209 820844,or private message me to let me know your thoughts.

    Look forward to hearing from you
    Sincerely,
    Mick French

    Thanks for your replies,which Ive passed on to my pal.He has now sourced the item he wanted,and also says thanks.Incidentally,he is a young lad,and does have internet access but he is new to boating,and just finding out about things.
    If we are mentioning ages,I am almost 72!
    Cheers

    There certainly were 2 types of Arun,and these where very much different.Some where made of wood and the later ones of glass fibre composite.There were 52 footers and 54 footers.The sterns on some were very fifferent to others.Adrian Clutterbuck as already suggested is a good man to contact and by joining the Lifeboat Enthusiasts Society, you will gain a whole load of information.I think you will find that the superstructure supplied with most models,is for a 54 foot version.
    Hope this helps

    Hi,I have now purchased Russels superb model,and it really is a beaut! it has now sailed into its new Port, near Falmouth, Cornwall.As was the real tug, it will be renamed "St.Mawes" and painted in the Falmouth Towage colours, to compliment my 2 other Falmouth Tugs,"St.Denys" and "St.Levan" The real tug, has long since been sold, reverted to her former name of "Ionia" again, and now lies rusting away, at Bideford,in Devon, where there is some talk of her being converted into a floating Cafe ! As for the model,I hope to be able to use it regularly, both for static displays,in aid of the RNLI, or indeed, on the water. THANKS Russ, for keeping your faith in me,I am so proud to own it.
