    The vessel was a floating Police detachement on the R.C.M.P. enforcing the laws of Canada. Thansporting people and goods from one detachement to another among other choars.

    Here is a brief history of the vessel that I am building.

    St. Roch (ship)
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    RCMPV St. Roch is a Royal Canadian Mounted Police schooner, the first ship to completely circumnavigate North America, and the second vessel to transit the Northwest Passage. She was the first ship to complete the Northwest Passage in the direction west to east (Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean), going the same route that Amundsen on the sailing vessel GjΓΈa went east to west, 38 years earlier.

    Sixteen years after being launched, St. Roch was refitted at Dartmouth, N.S. in preparation for her 1944 voyage. A much larger deckhouse was constructed with individual cabins for the crew, the 150 hp diesel engine was replaced with a 300 hp. diesel, and there were other, lesser, upgrades.
    The ship was most often captained by Henry Larsen.

    The ship is located at the Vancouver Maritime Museum in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and is open to the public for scheduled visits.

    There is a lot more history on internet.

    ------------------------------------

    The vessel was built in 1928 as a schooner, there was a restoration in 1930 and it was painted white and grey and a major restoration in 1944 as a ketch to the original color. When I looked at many pictures, I had a hard time to have the right color scheme. The references are from a book "Arctic workhorse The RCMP Schooner St-Roch" written by James P. DELGADO.

    You are right, this is a bow thruster. A bow thruster is not of that era. It was supposed to go onto another boat.
    The pond where I go has a huge fountain in the middle. My skill to navigate with sail are poor. It will be used in special moments such as to avoid collision or near sinking.

    Good day,
    It's been a while since my first introduction to the group. I have been busy with a lot of summer chores and camping.
    The rudder is made of brass covered with wood. the end top part of the shaft has a ring to prevent the rudder to be lifted. The rudder is inserted in a rectangular hole, down to the botom position in a small hole that serve as a pivot point. The rectangular plate with a triangle hinge is placed onto the rudder shaft and the ring prevents the rudder to be raised. At the end of the the triangular hinge is attached a security chain that is also attached to the rudder is case it comes out of the pilot hole. The rudder and the assembly is complete. A lot of sanding is to be done.
    The mast (2) are made of 19/32 brass tube. The cupling are made of aluminium and they swivel on all directions. Some parts are made on a CNC machine by my brother Gilles which was a machinist.
    The hull has been painted and some rub rail added and more to come. I am used to paint with a 4" bristle. Making all the paint detailed will be a challenge.

    Have a nice day.

    Is there a way to upload the pictures in the right order.

    I intend to have a fully RC functionnal model. A hurdle that I will have is the ballast of around 20 pounds to have the waterline at the right level. The ballast will be in or outside is the question. Any suggestion.

    There is a lot more history on internet.

    ------------------------------------

    The vessel attracted my attention about 40 years ago at the RCMP HQ in Montreal, QuΓ©bec Canada. I have retired from the force in 2010.
    In 1985, I accquired the plan of the vessel from Parks Canada or Public Archives Canada in Ottawa. I received 21 sheets of blueprint. The size of the vessel on the plan was about 24 inches and I enlarged it to 45 inches. The size was the suggestion of RC boat owner at the pond where I go with my "1949 Chris-Craft 19' racing runabout". The vessel was built in 1928 as a schooner, there was a restoration in 1930 and it was painted white and grey and a major restoration in 1944 as a ketch to the original color. When I looked at many pictures, I had a hard time to have the right color scheme. The references are from a book "Arctic workhorse The RCMP Schooner St-Roch" written by James P. DELGADO.

    I really started in June 2012 planning the size and making the building material from scratch. As per the building material, I used either plywood or LINDEN that is resawn to nominal size required for planking or else.

    The purpose of the blog is to share my passion with other boat builders and learn from otherssss.

    I have a model that I started in 1982 and I will finish it this year. Most of my outdoor or indoor project are finish and with Covid19 it limits my friends and travel. There is a lot of things to do that I have never done before. Model making what ever scale is a learning curve. We are never to old to learn what ever our limits are.

    Hy
    I have built a scale model of the "St-Roch" Γ  vessel of the R.C.M.P..
    The model is 36 inches in length. To determine the weight of the keel To build, I have put the model in the Spa and with the help of my grand son (3 years) we loaded the hull with 25 pounds of small rock until the waterline was at the right level. Was this the right way To calculate the keel weight.
    Thanks for your assistance.

    Hy. I am having a problem with weeds that are tangled around the propeller shaft.

    I know, don't go in the weeds is the first thing not to do but sometimes you don't see them.

    I search Internet and found a " rope cutter " that is installed around the shaft on a boat and cut the rope that are tangled around the shaft. Would a similar cutter exist for a RC BOAT?
