    ๐Ÿ“ Sailing Barge plans help
    5 months ago by Lemmerhengst ( Recruit)
    Flag
    Hello Joe,
    Try AMBO (google)
    They are the association of model barge owners and I believe they are based around Maldon, Essex. A great site that is currently under rebuild (like many 12'' to the foot barges!)
    Good luck with your research.
    Cheers Lemmerhengst

    In July 2015 the 26ft Firefly sailed from Ramsgate to Dunkirk with a fleet of some 50 other Members of the Association of Dunkirk Little Ships to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the evacuation.
    These little ships have an admiralty warrant to fly the St Geoge's Cross at the stemhead, a unique honour! (google images have lots of pics of her)

    ๐Ÿ“ Help? What could this become?
    2 years ago by Lemmerhengst ( Recruit)

    Hello Grandpa,
    The grp hull is almost certainly a 'Cheverton Crusader' class yacht designed by David Cheverton.
    If you want to see many photos and a set of lines, go to the Cheverton website. (Google search)
    I have sailed on one owned by a good friend, a lovely yacht that really sails well. if you decide not to proceed with the model, let me know as I think he should make a model of 'Pentoma' as a winter project!
    All the bast, Lemmerhengst.

    ๐Ÿ“ What is this Vessel ?
    3 years ago by Lemmerhengst ( Recruit)

    I believe she is a catermaran workboat for laying anchors to postion barges etc for construction works, possibly working on the new windfarms.
    There is something like it on the net, look for 16m workboat on www one2three.com.au

    Fair winds Lemmerhengst

    I think it is Bowman model, 1930's.
    They made them with steam power, clockwork and also rubber power.

    ๐Ÿ“ How do I fit a propellor shaft ?
    4 years ago by Lemmerhengst ( Recruit)
    Flag
    On my 12'' to the foot Dutch barge the stern tube is filled with gear oil. There is a conventional inboard stuffing gland and a face seal between outer bearing and thrust face of the propeller.
    So far so conventional, however instead of pumping top up oil with a large grease gun there is a pipe connecting the tube to a small oil reservoir placed above the shaft just at static water level.
    This arrangement works really well, no seepage of oil or water when moored up and only a small trace of oil at the water surface when I have to use a touch of reverse to stop her.

    This system would work well on a model boat using very thin oil. Oh yes, I restored a 1936 outboard motor and lost the prop because I forgot to replace the split pin on the retaining nut!

    Fair winds and smooth seas to you all Captain Lemmerhengst
