I use a wood cutting blade in my makita 18 volt jigsaw
Drill with HSS bits
Sanding is hard so cut accurate to minimise the need
Abrade surfaces to be glued or painted, only needs matting off.

I currently have cause to be using P38 and I've been waiting for the opportunity to do an alteration to the inflatable boat I bought from MMB. Ideal dimensions but completely flat bottomed.


So I CA'd a strip of brass down the centre line and filled. This didn't give quite enough angle so I glued another strip of brass on top and repeated.
Just one of many changes to come around a basically sound building block.


Now fits the cradle much better like the real one.

Spray cover added.
It's very difficult finding any one example that fits the bill so this will be a product of imagination. A few more details to add but the paint should transform it.

Thanks Daz


Nice to see the thread is being used for reference as the view count keeps on climbing despite my inactivity  :-))


The weather seems a long way from being warm so I still cannot do the lacquering. I have no motivation to finish the metalwork until then and I'm busy with other things.
I'd like to think I can make it to Balne Moor 4th March with her just for viewing and the social.  8)

John, as Andy has told you the first Balne Moor event is 4th March.  That though is a free sail not a dedicated tug tow event.  The 8th April is first dedicated towing event.  Having said that, there will be a tow in the water at all of our events, so the opportunity to tow is always there.

Coming along nicely as always Andy.  Is it going to get it's bum wet towing at Balne sometime soon? :-))

I understand perfectly Andy. For similar reasons it might be a bit longer before
my winter build sees the pond.  Won't be there on the 4th anyway.

What may have happened to T33cno and his formidable build?

Andy is a member of Balne Moor MBC and recently he had a go at tug towing. 

His boat performed well as can be seen here.  It is not quite finished yet though.

Hi Carl,

The event will start at about 10.30 and run until 16.00ish.

The gates are kept open on event days so you'll have no problem getting in.

Hopefully see you sometime on Sunday :-))
