Josse,

I for one think this hull could look EXACTLY like a bunker boat (I'm guessing it's a small fuel tanker for refueling) and in the same scale as the Well Enhancer. 

This little vessel is a refueling tanker, and it has a much stranger hull shape than yours. 

They key is perhaps putting some sloping bulwarks around the bows, like a tugboat, and giving her as little freeboard as you can.  Add in an appropriately scaled superstructure and some hoses and fittings on deck and it should turn out.  Don't be discouraged by the damage, that is easy enough to repair.

Hello ZZ56,

The idea is nice, but if i would do that i could much better start building a new hull.
This also isn't an ocean-going vessel, and this model was never meant to be a model of an exsisting ship, but my own design.

Greetings Josse

Hi Jossee,

I for one like the imagination that you are showing and we all have to start somewhere and I'm sure all the folks on here will give you all the support and encouragement.

What really helped me was the Masterclass section - the boat for beginners by Bluebird was a good build and certainly helped my confidence and understanding.

Keep building and most of all keep enjoying it.
