Mmm Wish it was coffee and not rust stains from the crane they never use until it needs to be fixed for survey.  {-)

Here are a couple more pics that may help you all.

And have plenty of brooms near by.
Thought that was something that the Submariners did, that is fly a broom at masthead.

Seriously what is the crane used for.

Judging by the coffee stains it wouldn't want to used to it's limit unless it has a high safety factor.

We had a stainless steel crane on the Minehunter :} no rust and ours got used all the time :-)

Flying a broom is used to boast of a "Clean Sweep" ie all torpedoes fired scoring a hit. Not sure but I think it may have started as a Yank tradition.

mmmm  :o be rest assured RaaArtyGunner

1. The deck is high tensile aluminium plate to AS Wopply Wop & the anti-skid ablative coating is only stained...by the metallic rust from above
2. I understand that the lower steel plate structure of the electro/hydraulic hoist [which is depicted with surface corrosion] is from AS ....Grade 350 plate & with a 4:1 FOS on yield in the Naval design Standards = 1400 Mpa stress within the structure prior to failure <*<

The structure if maintained........ %) will never fracture or fail..............Derek  :P

Derek,

Now there be the question for a land lubber, if maintained, and I specifically noticed all the coffee on the cables and pulley/wheels on the crane?  O0 O0 O0

But what does it lift?

 :embarrassed:...

1. the coffee stains on the cables [wires] are I suspect are a combination of Copper Kote & Denso + fish oil  O0
2. the SWL lifting capacity is clearly shown as 850kg @ 6.5M reach ...if they would only bring the TV series back  ....we could see.  :kiss: ........did the crane lift the Zodiacs back on board?  %)
3. one must remember an RAN vessel on deployment  >>:-( may not have sufficient time in port when refueling to attend to minor blemishes & cosmetic surface corrosion
4. naturally these issues are rectified during periods of refit ..........Derek

Derek,

Thanks, just thought it was a bit of overkill, if only to lift the Zodiacs, unless, even with 6.5 metre reach, the Zodiacs all up weight is sizeable.

Can't have been doing much "launching/retrieval" as in the TV series else the cables would be "polished bright" with use.  %) %) %) %)

Probably because it moves they salute it  O0 O0 {-) {-)

Now Ya know i ain't a sailor boy. O0 O0

Hi Brian,

The trimm and the rudder made of circuit PCB (3mm thik) fiberglass - the copper film was removed.
The stairs is made also fiberglass but it is only 1mm thik.

Hi for All,

I could work my boat again - just four tube but they look good.
And here is something other ...
I designed a circuit for my scale boats - and use one of them a few month in another boat.
It is a PIC controlled circuit. There are 10 LED output - one of the PWM for flash imitation - 5 high current output - one of the PWM for motors, or any other thing - a foghorn and an alarm siren.
A power supply with BEC.
These outputs are controlled maximum 3 Rx chanel.

I am not surprised that there have been no replies to your last post Laszlo.
I, for one, am speechless at your abilities and the beautyful layout.  :-)) :-))

Hi,

I put these pictures for those who want to build the circuit. I share the plan and the program with pleasure.
It is possible to use it for any kind of boat - cargo-, war- or any other type.
There is a jumper on the PCB which allow to programming the board for two boat type - eg. there is no alarm siren on a cargo ship, or no need all channel to a simple speed boat - and to switch between the two program is just simple put the jumper to the other side.
