Is it just me? I have a mixed understanding in the material composition  %)  [and construction  {-) ] of this component as offered in an earlier posting

It is clear in the latter posting of the Model Dockyards offering as lists the various material combinations selections :-)) ..... Derek

The model Dockyard also appear to have 3 in stock
Might be a good idea to ring before ordering to make sure they are the stainless steel ones, and not the brass as you've already had the wrong one sent once

Interesting glimpse of a few guitars & basses behind the model! I'm a working bass player myself.

Evening Michael.......just a few thoughts

1. rather than racing in & stripping the complete paint from the hull, consider gently sanding a small section with cork block & paper toward the bow....say 3" x 3"........stripping the complete hull could uncover building matters that were best left under paint & away from view
2. this will provide an understanding as to the construction [presumably plank on frame] and importantly also an understanding if complete removal of the hull paint is actually required, or could a complete localised sanding be acceptable
3. painting systems from the 50's will probably have been oil based, however modern day compatible paint products should be available with 70 year old paint if is is intact
4. as Greg mentioned, members here on MBM will have a vast knowledge on the appropriate paints to use

Keep us posted with your restoration progress

Derek that  a Hofner Ignition voilin [shaped] bass guitar in the background? [+ another three x 4 string guitars {-)

Hi all,
As SailorGreg did prophesied I'm finding difficult to post any images. I have linked to some of the photos but I do not know how long they will remain up, I've also scaled them right back to be of a practical size.

If you know of any better image hosting sites please let me know as I have two photos of the boat in full and in landscape but they will not upload for some reason. So here are the only 3 photos I could get to upload.

As you can see she not in overly bad shape but she does need a lot of work. The first step will be to strip off the paint and have a good look at the condition of the hull. I have noticed damage to the foward part of the keel which will need attention.

All The Best

Far more simple and easy to comprehend is to fit an auto fuse holder with a 25amp blade fuse. If you can't get it to blow reduce to a 20 amp and so on.
