My shed/garage/boat yard.

Just a couple of snaps of where I relax with my boats etc. Could never be used as a garage as side of house was altered before we moved here.
Double glazed, small heater when needed and plenty of lights.
I work in F1 - McLarens - and it is very clinical in as much as it is so clean and corporate. 24 hour cleaners employed, the place is mainly white and grey including the machines we work on. To get back from there into my little haven is bliss!! Piles of rubbish cleaned up when I feel like it, rummaging around for "lost" tools, not having to clean up every night. Lovely. Will try and get some pics to show the difference between there - McLarens - and the real world here.
Have included one to give an idea of what its like. Excuse look on face, am not very photogenic :embarrassed:

Now that's a burning question, Bryan, especially when some are 4 to 5 foot long. I've been puzzling this problem myself, as it doesn't take long to accumulate them.

Does 'one' store them in the loft or does 'one' build a 'show rack', which in itself takes up a load of room and looks a bit flashy.

I've built a shelf which filled up rather quickly, and with the Boston and Waverley looking for storage, I now don't know what to do.

Just lumped all the boaty bits on one shelf and didn't notice that.  :embarrassed:  SWMBO won't have them in the house.

Sorry to hijack the thread, so here's my 'shed'

Heres a working shed for you, full of junk, rusty old tools,  the  old ladder, the tumble drier, an old computer desk, old gas fire (not working)  oil cans,  dust,  draughts,   leaks,  this years wasp population and a model boat and numerous old unused abandoned bits of c**p.

Just a point here lads,think about what I am about to say pin your ears back and listen!!!!!!!!!!!


right then not one to put water on the fire so tho speak BUT think on lads and lasses this forum is available to the general public !!!HMM do you honestly think it is a good idea to post pictures of your workshops,personally I think not.WHY simple me old hearties there are plenty of tea leaves who spend all day looking at site like this,WHY so they can find out where you live etc and before you know it all your tools have gone and more to the point all the boats,sorry Brian Young but didnt you have a very unpleasant experience a few years back.Brian no way was i having a go at yourself but you have had this NASTY experience and would have to agree with me on this one.

We should not post pictures on this site of the layout of our workshops etc,fair enough our boats and how they are built,but don't you think we are asking for trouble

I often do.    8)   

It's not always like this. This was after the burglars left.  Good point Stavros, they took out the double glazing pane and cleaned us out some years ago.  Things are a bit different nowadays, me being an electrician and all that. 8)

An old pick back where there were at least two computers in the studio...

The "shop" proper is covered by the three "D's"
Dirty disorganized and disaster I think...  :D

welcome to my workshop! This area is dedicated to my two main hobbies: model boats and ham radio. The two hobbies have become hideously entwined in this small area.



picture 1 shows the general working area with mechanical tools to the right and electrical stuff to the left. The large beige enclosure under the bench is part of a 250w PA system (a remnant from my disco days), which is still occasionally pressed into service for family parties and charity events. 



Picture two shows my HF radio transceiver and VHF multimode radio. On the bench is a GT400 race boat whilst underneath are two more GT400s belonging to my kids (which have recently been rebuilt). There is also a mixture of battery chargers and RF test equipment on the bench. the bag on the right contains a selection of broken mouldings and other scrap from sadly deceased boats (mostly fast electrics). The big green bag contains all the guys and hardware for an 80ft antenna mast.
 


On the top shelf are two Club 500s awaiting a new set of hull mouldings from Model Slipway. The blue one probably could be repaired but it has been patched so many times I decided to invest in a new hull. These boats have been pretty robust, surviving several crashes during the past few seasons, but finally gave up on their last outing. The yellow boat started life as a Dateline Marine Volante but has had a step cut into the hull to make it faster and a chamber to make it self righting. This was started at least 5 years ago and is still not yet finished!l
