OUR LASS II BUILD - MODEL SLIPWAY
« on: December 27, 2009, 07:11:53 PM »

Hello,
This is my first post on here so I thought that as I am building a new model that I would share it with you all.
I am a full time commercial fisherman from Lowestoft (Pictures of my boat are attached), she is a 32 foot Scottish wooden built trawler/potter that I use for longlining and netting.She is Larch on Oak and weighs 11 tons.  I also take out angling parties at weekends too.







When im not doing all of this, I like to make some progress on the Model Slipway kit that my partner bought for my christmas present.
I wont go into detail about the kit as it has been covered at length elsewhere but here are some pictures of the progress since christmas day.
 
The Hull size with my 2 year old daughter sitting in it!!!




Bow Thruster tube in place





Stern/Running Gear Glassed in:





Rudder/Kort Nozzle/Etc:





Size of hull:



As you can see, I have also cut out the space for the anchor box in the forward hull and the stern net appetures too. Next will be the bilge keels, anchor box construction and filling around the skeg/kort Nozzle, etc before the main deck beams go in.

I hope you enjoy my build thread.

Wow. I really wanted this kit for Christmas but Slipway won't be shipping it to the States until after January.  >>:-( Looks like you could put anything you want in that big hull. All kinds of sound, lights, the kitchen sink.

Hi Guys,
Sorry its been a couple of weeks since I updated this build but I have been out at sea while the weather has been calm but cold!!

For those of you who have asked, heres a picture of the wheelhouse interior, albeit on my last boat, but it gives you an idea of what us commercial fishermen have in our cabins:



And heres some of last Fridays catch before it was landed into the market:





Now, back to the model!

The deck beams and formaers were bonded in with epoxy and the rear lower deck bulwarks filled and sanded, then the decks were laid and left to dry for a couple of days, but be warned, the hull on the model is so out of shape that it took 2 days for the hull to pull in in the warm and settle.













I will do some more tonight in the way of filling and sanding around the deck adges and sorting out tidying up the hull steps, etc.

More updates as and when I get some more done this week, which with this weather at the moment should be quite frequently!!!!

Hi,

I have noticed that the tube of the rudder ends about 5mm below the waterline. 
So it may be better to ballast a bit less to prevent water comming in ;)

Grtz,

Michel.

Started work on the rear gantry and crane today,replacing inner part of hydraulic rams with brass rod instead of the plastic tube to give it bit more strength and moves more easily...

Thanks for the comments, she'll be impressive when done (hopefully).%) This is one of the best kits to build from I've done so far, and there have been quite a lot, top marks to Jackie and Laurie at MSW. Can't wait to see the CNC Maggie M when she's ready. Dave. :-))

Rear gantry and crane almost finished, just hydraulic lines to go on after painting. Put in place temporarily to show layout... :-)

Verry nice build number 6  :-))

After about 3 months I am only at the stage of the deck supports due to lack of time to build  :((

Thanks for comments. I know the feeling, too much to do and not enough hours in the day. Got 2 days off now so hope to do some more to her, that's the plan anyway! :-)

I've started building one too.  I've changed a few things, used fiberglass for the main and lower decks, and I did most of the hull interior stuff so I'm a little behind but at least I'm not working through a 6" x 6" opening.  She is quite a hull, I can't wait to get it in the water.  Here's a link to some pics of where I am so far:

Both builds in the forum so far are very nice indeed  :-)) , I hope I can do as nice a job

Looking good. I know what you mean about the opening, a bit like keyhole surgery if you don't sort the running gear etc out first. Keep us posted on the build, Dave. :-))

All very well fixing all your running gear first, but make sure you can remove it if necessary.  :-))
