Spent some time today on the main deck and winch deck.

The pics show what I have done. Whilst in the process of doing this, I discovered a mistake in the build. The pic with the arrows shows a space between decks that would suit only vertically challenged people!

So, what to modify? Add a plank above and raise the deck levels? Or remove a plank along the main deck. After measuring all round again, decided that the best (only) option really was to remove a plank along each side of the main deck. This took some time, as I also had to lower all the frames to suit. Anyway, got it done and you can see the difference in the following pic.

Doh! managed to load one pic twice!

Got back to it today, and realised that the main deck wasnt the correct width, so, out with the saw and cut off some of the frame edges.

The first and second pic show after modification. But, I then realised that the sides above the main deck carry through under the next deck Doh!

So, out came the saw again, you can see in pic 3 the mods I made.

Pics 4 and 5 show the area within the bow, with a couple of platforms in place for batteries and electronics etc.

Before going any further with the decks, I thought I should make the winches, the thinking being that decks are easier to modify at a later date if required than winches.

Anyway, here are pics of progress so far.

I didn't think the main deck was too narrow...
I did think that the side passages alone the deck were too wide though...  :P

Looking good Ian...  :-))

And back to the Orca after steam engine time!

Anyway, I have fitted the 'p' brackets, mounted the motors and put in the rudder tubes - all routine stuff, so I wont put in pics of those.

I have been wondering how to get access to the motors and shafts etc through the main deck, eventually, I came to the idea of using re seal-able food boxes recessed slightly below the deck, and fit a removable deck over the top.

The pics show the progress:

Hello.

After reading your building report I am surprised about your solution to create a watertight deck.
I new another modeller with the same solution.
But I will give you my solution.
I made all decks of plexy glass, perfect to saw,and glue.
In this deck I made a hatch.
This hatch you can tape complete watertight with isolation tape.
Above this plexy deck is the falch deck this is made of 1,8 mm print plate.
At the print I glued the wooden deck.

If there are any troubles under need you only take of the falch deck and you can see trough the plexy deck all what happen under need.

It┤s simple to made and very use full.


Please look at the photos.

Hi Leen,

What did you build your finish deck on.
It looks very thin, but also very rigid.

Hi Aimee

The falsch deck is made of printplate 1,8 mm.
Print plate is very hard en get good shape.
That's importand because the wooden planks are glued at this print plate.

Till now I works perfect.

The plexy deck and hatch construction is copied many times.
It's to simple explane, but it works perfect.

Do You get the time to meed us again in Guterloh?

Dont you just hate building model boats?

Paint hardly dry on the last one, and here I go again! %% %%

Ulstein, the builders and Bourbon wouldnt let me have a linesplan, so I designed the hull myself.

Thank you to those who let me have some pics and information - you know who you are.

Anyway, here are the frames pasted onto plywood ready fro cutting out.

Good morning, dear XBow enthusiasts,
thats an absolutely brilliant work  :-)) :-)). I'm currently working on a scratch built diving support vessel with Ulstein XBow. I wish my model would be looking as good as yours boatmadman <:(.

Like PeterS, who is in the same German XBow community like me

http://forum.modellkapitaene.net/viewforum.php?f=353&sid=d2cab56781b55fe64165cf1cc54b66ef

I made an photo building report, which you can find here:

Hello Ian,
these resealable boxes are famouse for not taking any glue. How do you get the hatches watertight if you can't take any glue?

Regards

I dont have a set of plans in the conventional sense, I designed this hull in Delftship, and then worked on the fittings from photographs taken from the web and  the Bourbon website.

An update on the build, I have now been able to restart this project and have epoxied the inside of the hull, and started construction of the handling crane, pics will follow soon.
