How many is to Many by Helineil Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
I've just been informed by my wife that I forgot to mention a small hydrofoil, a pond yatch and a small glassfibre hull that I had forgot about. O well blame my old age!

How many is to Many by Helineil Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
I have two sailing boats, two tugs, one trawler,one pilot boat, one speedboat all working. Restoring one robbe dusseldorf, building one tamar lifeboat,helping my son with a 48" perkasa and I have two lesro fire tenders waiting to be restored and a steam launch to build and now I am wondering why I keep looking at other boats and dreaming. Good job my wife understands, I just can't help myself!

Wanted 1/16 Model Slipway Tamar Kit by Helineil Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi Alan. I am building a model slipway tamar at the moment,I have completed all the main construction. There are one or two things you need to look at and study before assembly so if you decide to purchase a kit mail me and I will help in any way I can with the things that I found during my build.

Tamar lifeboat by Helineil Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 years ago
I have recently started to build a model slipway tamar class lifeboat and when marking out the holes for the bow thruster I noticed that the lower spray rails were not symetrical and that the front 220mm of the port side needed building up gradually from 0 to 5mm and back to 0 in order to correct the problem. I only noticed this because I printed two bow thruster position patterns instead of using the one supplied in the booklet and when used together showed up the problem. Not to difficult to resolve, but hope this might be useful to other tammar builders. If anyone has any other hints or tips for making this boat I would be most grateful👍

Free Fire boats by Helineil Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 years ago
Hi Alan I would be very interested in one of your boats I am just finishing a Perkasa and a fire tender would be a good companion I live in Preston so would have no problem in collecting . Hope one is still available Regards. Neil.
