    Emily James
    Built from a fibre glass Hull I bought as part of a bundle on eBay. Made her into a steel beamer typical of the south coast.
    (Working Vessel) Winch for Emily P II
    Scaled at 1:12 Made of PVA board, plastic water pipe and wooden skewers! The end blocks were made from a steel rod which I turned on the metal lathe. Tried hard to get the large end nut detail. Need to add the warps once I have made the rope rusty looking! (5/10)
    (Working Vessel) Our Tru
    I made this boat when I was 16. My Dad brought two pieces of wood home from the sawmill that he worked at that he had shaped roughly. I added the keel, bildges and shaped the hull. Wheelhouse is made of card and this is the current one ( I think there has been 4 different designs!). Gantry is made of brass. No power, she sails on the wind! Pulled back to shore by a line! Based on one or two of the inshore beach boats at Dungeness in Kent at the time. Pictures here are from two years ago when I dusted her off, put the flags on and reminisced! (7/10)
    (Working Vessel) Wheelhouse for Emily P II
    I ordered a Cygnus wheelhouse from Models by Design. Windows and door cut out. I have constructed the interior out of 2.5mm PVA board which I will paint to replicate wood. I will be adding a sink and a small cooker to the galley on the aft wall. I have cut the cooker area out but still have to cut the sink. (5/10)
    (Working Vessel) Aft gantry for Emily P II update
    Fed the wires for the lights through the channels made and then painted the structure. Coated with a silver grey emulsion and then a stainless colour enamel. Net drum fits perfectly! (5/10)

    (Working Vessel) Aft gantry for Emily P II
    Aft gantry taking shape. Have grooved a section put in one of the legs, top leg and cross beam.. this will be to put the wires for lights in. I will then plaster over the groove and sand and paint. (5/10)
    (Working Vessel) Net drum for Emily P II
    Completed the net drum today from dowel and 2.5 mm PVA board. Will be given a rust up at a later stage. Will be positioned on the aft gantry (5/10)
    (Working Vessel) Emily P II
    Purchased this hull from Prelived for Β£35 and intend to create a fishing boat capable of trawling and netting. Scale will be 1:12 The black plastic is 2.5mm thick and has been used to give the gunnels some depth. There will be a layer of fibre glass applied. Updates as the build continues... (Motor: Torpedo 500) (6/10)
    (Working Vessel) Net Hauler for next model Emily P II
    Scale 1:12 Have made this micro hauler static model for the next inshore fishing boat I am currently building. Made after reviewing plans and measuring a couple of styles on fishing boats. Made from sheet PVA craft board and two different sizes of water pipe... (5/10)
    (Working Vessel) Emily P
    Scratch built from a wooden hull picked up on eBay for Β£35. Total spend on this project was Β£47. Based on an inshore stern trawler. (5/10)

    It’s great to see another fishing boat being made! Well done she looks good! However now the maiden trip has been done the fishing boat will be dirty in real life... I do hope you add some wear n tear!!

    πŸ“ Disaster on the bench!
    2 months ago by GrahamP74 ( Midshipman)
    Flag
    I decided to take Our Ben out to the bench to have a small paint up, however due to an accident several rather large boxes fell and caused her to end up in the floor! Hull is fortunately intact. I have seen this as an opportunity to resite the wheelhouse to one side to allow more deck space. Some of the capping had also broken so I have re applied using resin and tissue. This has given it much more strength.
    Now I can paint her! Photos to follow!!

    I spent a day at sea to understand the gear and get lots of measurements. The boat is fishing for whelks currently and after hauling and shooting 200 pots we had just under 500 kilos!

    πŸ“ Gemini G10 Catamaran fishing boat

    My next project has been a request from a local fisherman who after seeing my other models has asked me to make one of his. My father put the engines in the boat when it was first built. Julie Jean works from the beach at Dungeness. I am going to make the hulls from scratch as I can not find a catamaran hull with the right hull shape. This will be made from board and then coated in glass and resin. Scale will be metric 5cm - 1 m so total length will be 50cm..some photos here of the boat

    Well I would be up for it! I’m attending the Folkestone trawler race in August! Nervous that one of the flour bombs might damage her though!!!! Also going to a regatta at Dover in August.. apparently there aren’t many fishing boats there... I intend to change that!!

    A quick hours work tonight making the fish box stacks.
    Constructed by making a frame work and then adding strips of thinner plastic around in bands to give the impression of stacked boxes. Added a false base into the frame.
    I will as usual add the detail and the paint!

    Thanks Martin. Still got some fish boxes to make and when they arrive I have the radars to make that will turn. And then the detail will no doubt continue with deck hose, broom, life rings, blah blah blah!!!!

    Very true! Fishermen do love a sub!!
    Showed one of my fishermen friends earlier, he asked how I made the trawls.
    Told him it was the bags you put your socks in when they go in the washing machine and a satsuma bag for the cod ends..
    He said a couple of two hour tows across the lake should give a good haul of satsumas!!

    Yes sadly model shops are a rare thing these days!
    According to my dad he took the boat to the pond when he was a boy. Before the days of electrics.. just had his newest model on a long length of string. He pushed it out and as he did water went up the tube and started to fill the hull! Before he could pull it back in he watched it sink from the stern forward!!
