I noticed in Dave's article that the Boy Shayne has different bow & stern sections Darren. Also in Suttons ad it mentions much bigger boats, I guess they are still on the drawing board.

time for an update
 had few other bits on the go plus work and family so slow progress with this1, and a shape of model ive never attempted before so a new learning curve
build from plans i drew myself , started with cutting frames and assembling on keels, then sides inplace then deck
 was strugling for ideas on how to shape the bilges and bulbus bows, settled on using flower arangeing foam and its spot on, filled all between frames and shaped bilges and made bows from it, then going to filler over the top and sand smooth, well, thats the plan anyway!
