    Seven years ago this boat was given to me making it my first boat. Turned out to be a good starter boat as the hull was almost finished. Having painted it the way the write up seamed to say. Then ready to run and into the water. The boat being top heavy it tipped and took on water. Back to the work bench and striped and left to sit until this year. The boat is almost finished needs rudder motor and ballast Rick

    With the servos set up and tested worked on the engine and condenser placement and installation. Built a base for the condenser and epoxied in place. The frame were trimmed down to let the engine base sit at the right level and angle to the prop shaft. Next the frames were trimmed for the boiler to sit lower in the boat. Boiler was lagged in place. All three engine condenser and boiler are set up for easy take out to clean and repair if needed. Rick

    So right Martin and Nerys it was good to see a notification. I do believe it has been quieter this past while.Maybe we are in need of a rest from the reality of the pandemic. A light for me has been that Nancy and I have had our first shots of the vaccine.Second shot early July. If the shots are heard around the world we may have hope for brighter days to come.

    Hi Martin With the limited space for the servo and arm I built the pivot arm with threaded rod to be able to connect the rudder through the transom. Looks a bit off as the arm was built from my parts box a one of if you will.

    To wake and hear and see that the Queen had lost Philip was sad for me. Knowing he was not well and time was not on his side. Most of all sad that with lock down he will not have the send off that would have been without covid. A life well lived.

    The rudder bracket installed worked on servo position and building linkage from the rudder to servo. Test of servo rudder went well. Two mini servos set up one for forward and reverse the second for steam shut-off. Pictures show covers for electronics and servos.

    The rudder bracket was made and clamped in place to test the movement of the rudder. The rudder moved side to side with ease .The brackets were brazed on to a mounting plate to make hanging the rudder easier. The servo for the rudder will be next.

    In my wood bins I found strips of 1/2 x 1/16 mahogany left over from the Dumas Cobra build to do the top deck. Had to cut in a few small pieces in spots to finish the job. After seeing the out come I'm wishing I had enough strips to do the hull.
    Cost and wishful thinking on my part .On to the next job.

    With the stern fixed the coaming was next . Wrapped a towel around a 1/2 "x 1/8" x 48"strip of plywood soaked in hot water slowly bending until ready to put in place . Seats were built in place to be able to remove and work on coupling. The back cover was built . The rub rail was put on. Mahogany will be next.
