    Hello all
    I look at the destruction weather has on us from flooding to fire, high winds and accidents we are lucky if it misses us or leave us with out damage to our homes and to us but when it hits close you see what we do to help each other in times of need I do hope that never changes as we all do and sometimes need help .
    Stay safe and continue to help one another .

    Getting back onto the forum I wanted to tell about the kit I'm working on and a little background for the build
    Oct 2019 I was at a boat club meeting at another club and they had a sale there. At the start I didn't see anything but a member came in with the Arkit of the Cutty Sark so I asked how much he wanted for the kit his answer was nothing I couldn't turn it down as I like to build but had not built a static boat let alone a three master with rigging .So far the build is going very well as I'm now working on the rigging I do wish my eyes were younger

    Having just found this post I may be late to the show I think the Billings African Queen is a good boat but I i'm not sure the abs hull will stand to the heat of a boiler and engine you may want to scratch build a wooden hull for her .

    To make the hull water tight I use a product called z-poxy it's a 2 part product mixed in hardener and resin of the same amounts and I use a layer of fibber cloth and them the z-poxy smooth as best you can about 30 min. time to use and then let harden over night at least 24 hours and them you can sand and finish with filler if needed or some more coats of z-poxy sanding after each coat.

    Hello
    I myself think soldering is practice doing clean surfaces are the first step flux, type of solder and a good iron .
    Holding the pieces in jigs or clamps will assist in the final out- come.
    At first it seems very hard but practice will prove to help and soldering becomes a little easier.

    Hi Gary
    Yes I watched the videos great work .
    I only have a small boiler but should get about 15 mins. run time and yes I'm hoping the eyes hold up the good thing is I can take my time at it.
    The slide valve timing may be another issue I will have to learn.
    Will keep you up to date when the engine comes in .

    My Bad Escrich should have said that it's a globe valve and that's why I need a different valve.
