Hi All

I have filled and sanded the low spots and put on the first of three thin coats of epoxy resin.

Three days off work, the day started wonderful, lots of sun  :D
So out with the hull, bucket of warm soapy water, some 320 grit wet and dry, and got sanding ready for the next coat of epoxy.
Guess what the wind has turned to the good old southerly (cold) the temp has dropped 5 deg in 30 mins, so no epoxy today  >>:-(

Any who have a look at the pics

Hi All
Well it has been a good couple of days, Hull has been epoxied, wet sanded and primed.
I have even removed it from the build board, so my first look at the inside of the hull, I must say I am quite chuffed  :D

Hello Mayhemers

Well I have started fitting up some of the controller bits and bobs, while I wait for the prop shafts and the rest of the drive train from the UK.

Hay all

I am now looking at making a start of the cabin/engine cover area, however I don't have much in the way of detailed drawings. who has reasonable drawings available with measurements.

Any ideas?

Being an Aussie, I do know what a dingbat means...usually, but did you know it also means "an ornament, character or spacer used in typesetting, sometimes more formally known as a "printer's ornament" or "printer's character".? I certainly didn't.

This has nothing to do with AndrewB's superb diagonal planking, however.

Derek, perhaps I'm also a dingbat, as I'm currently building a freelance pusher tug of my own design for 3 of my grandsons and, while the hull is almost finished, I haven't decided on the superstructure either. I'm just making it up as I go along  O0

Hi AndrewB, This link may help with a plan to build either a late war version (plan CF12) or the earlier layout (plan CF4) with launch tubes for the torpedoes. The plans are drawn in 1:32 scale:

Nice Build
if you can get hold of Wooden Boat Magazine issue 129 (March/April 1996) there are several drawings there of superstructure layouts.
