    Thank you very much. I can’t / won’t take all the credit for this. I am building the model with my neighbour. It’s his first model too, but he is a keen amateur worker of wood πŸ˜€

    She is coming along. The bulwarks have been made and will soon be fitted. The masts, spars and sprits have been turned and we should be getting some bits and pieces from the β€˜new’ Mastman very soon. Including the keel πŸ˜€
    The photos were taken last night.

    Hi. Thanks for the guidance. I’ll try that again.

    I haven’t been to Laytham yet. It’s very close to me, but this is a first attempt at a model……….

    Afternoon all. A quick update on our model’s progress. The RC gear has been fitted and the decking is going on. The Masts, Spas and bowsprit have been turned up.

    Can anyone let me know if Mastman is still in business as I am struggling to get hold of him?

    Thanks

    πŸ“ Mental Health & Wellbeing Volunteers
    3 months ago by Jerry 001 ( Master Seaman)
    Flag
    The Bahamas Maritime Authority (BMA) today announces that it has recognised the Seafarer Mental Health Awareness and Wellbeing course offered by Isca Wellbeing as complying with the requirements set out by The BMA. The course, which is non-STCW or other convention-related, is the first seafarer mental health training recognised by The BMA.

    The training, which is based on the Maritime Charities Group (MCG) Mental Health Awareness & Wellbeing Training Standard, has been designed specifically for seafarers to help them to understand the different types of mental health disorders and their causes. It enables participants to recognise changes in behaviour in themselves and in others and gives guidance as to how to respond to these changes and where to find assistance and support. Finally, the course demonstrates the β€˜5 Ways to Wellbeing’ – a pathway that will help seafarers to promote their own mental wellbeing.



    Capt Jerry Mooney, Technical & Compliance Officer in The BMA’s Seafarers & Manning Department.
    Both seafarers and shore-based personnel are already feeling the benefits from participation in the course with feedback showing that 100% of delegates now have the knowledge to recognise signs of poor mental health in themselves and others, and that they now know how to respond if a colleague or seafarer is facing a mental health crisis.

    The BMA has long taken a proactive stance on the wellbeing of seafarers, it has launched the Seafarer COVID-19 Welfare Survey, responses from which are still being received, and so was eager to give recognition to a training course which would be of benefit to seafarers worldwide, not just those flagged with The BMA but also the wider industry. Although not a requirement of The BMA, the flag is pleased to be able to bring it to the attention of crews and their owners.

    Capt Jerry Mooney, Technical & Compliance Officer in The BMA’s Seafarers & Manning Department, said: β€œIt made perfect sense for The BMA to consider Isca Wellbeing’s approach regarding course recognition. As can be seen with our Mental Health Survey (run in collaboration with researchers at the University of Washington) we are already leading ship registries in promoting the importance of Seafarer’s Mental Health. Now, with our recognition of Isca Wellbeing’s Mental Health Training, we can also show that we are intent on doing something about it. Seafarers are the life blood of the world’s trade and we must ensure they are cared for.”



    John Burden, Managing Director of Isca Wellbeing.
    COVID-19 has undoubtedly exacerbated the mental health challenges for seafarers who, even prior to the pandemic, were already showing the effects of long periods away from loved ones, isolation, trouble sleeping, rough seas, quality of food, cultural differences onboard and job insecurity. The development of a course to help address these issues could not come too soon.

    John Burden, Managing Director of Isca Wellbeing said: β€œThere are some very good services that respond to seafarers who are in need, but we wanted to offer a more proactive approach and have pulled together a highly qualified team to create the Seafarer Mental Health Awareness and Wellbeing course. Everyone involved has a connection to maritime and understands the unique challenges of life at sea – our operational team also run a crewing agency, and our mental health trainers have a personal connection to this industry that we love.

    β€œWe approached The BMA with the course as we had identified The Bahamas as a flag with a particular interest in the mental health and wellbeing of its crew and as an authority which shares our ethos. The 2-day course, which is delivered either via Zoom or in person, complements our existing service in which we provide weekly mental health training and support videos to over 15,000 seafarers. We are delighted that The BMA has recognised the course and look forward to starting to work with its crews, educating them on mental health and how to look after their wellbeing, whether at sea or on dry land.”

    So we have finished planking the hull filling the gaps (with car body filler), sanding down and it’s just had a second coat of primer.

    Does anyone know where I can buy a lead torpedo keel weight. Really don’t fancy making one myself 😱

    Slow and steady. Not long until the exterior of the hull will be ready for filling, sanding and priming. πŸ˜€

    I started on the cargo ships, but soon moved over to the tankers and much preferred them. Stayed on tankers for the next 25 years pretty much. I did a couple of FG trips with FTE. I joined the Speciality in Barbados in 1981. The Superiority was another, went to Italy, East Germany and Sweden. Should have gone to Casablanca but paid-off in Wismar and came home in time for my 21st birthday and to sit my first ticket.

    Not sure on the Mizzen, we’ll have to have a look and decide soon(ish) though. I was with Everards for 10 years from 1979. Sailed with and worked with a few ex. Bargemen. Some great lamp swinging yarns!

    Hi
    We’re scratch building the boat with plans from Sarik. She’s 1/24th scale and the original was owned by the company I first went to sea with.

    We started at the end of April (2021) an do about 8 to 10 hours a week on her.

    That’s very kind of you. Thank you very much. We are scratch building her from the plans we got from Sarik. The intention is to go for the big rig with the extended bowsprit.

    We are really enjoying the process πŸ˜€

    Thank you very much. I have started build log. Being very ambitious and having never built anything other than an airfix model (30 years ago), but it is coming on nicely 😊

    I am about to buy the servos for our 1/24th scale model of the Veronica. Does anyone have any suggestions which ones I should consider and recommend a supplier (rudder servo and sail servo)?
