The clamps came off today and it's still holding fast   :-))      That P.V.A. glue works a treat on plywood.

I removed the soaking wet 'plywood' from the bath and bent it into shape around the stern. I left it clamped for a few hour to let it dry a bit and then fitted it with some P.V.A and re clamped it in place.

The rope locker was then constructed and glued and left for the night.  (lot of waiting for glue to dry, which suited me as the sun was out)

Well you've got a few bends there Larry. She looks nice.  :-))  Is it a single prop ? What size is it ?   

I've gone for 70mm  4 blade as I shall need slow power.

Hi Peter.

Even worse today.  The clamps came of and it's stuck like Wow. I've laid out all the extras to get a better picture. She is quite hollow inside and the weight has come off her a treat.  Mind you, I might need a Jet engine to get her up on the plane.  :}

Hi Larry,

May I recommend  3mm prop shaft with a 50 or 60mm 4 blade brass prop (depends on room under stern of course)

A 545 motor (many coils) would be ample for tug use and drive her powerfully. You would only need a 15 amp speed controller.

Hope this helps

Ken

I was actually referring to the "other build project" Ken, not Hibernia. I'm sure Hibernia will float...eventually O0

 Oh!!                             :}

The way I'm switching between projects I was getting cement dust on the boat.   %)  so we were both right in a way.  Today I was called in for Grandchild duties so had a rest from glueing.

Tomorrow I thought I might spray the hull with red oxide as she's looking a bit patchy and looking sorry for herself.   :embarrassed:

Cheers

Ken

Hi Ken here is a painting done by my Cousin Ian of the Hibernia and Avenger you might like, I Know it is a bit of a way off yet, but look at the mizen mast on both of them and you will see that they are Vertical to the water line and not raked at all, we all thought it always looked a bit odd but that was how they were.  Geo.

That's great George. Thank you.  I managed to get some air vents just like those behind the funnel. Amazing just how many details I've missed as every time I look there are more. Take for example the hand rails above the deck level containers against the cabin. I have not left enough room to fit them so will have to shorten the cabinets to make room above.

One feature that will come up soon is the water feed to the fire hoses. I'm assuming it will come up one of the legs to the platform. I have the route from upper deck level all ready planned out so it seems the best feed.

Thanks for your help so far.

Ken

Hi Ken     The water pipes were routed up the front of the main ladder to the fire platform, that is how I have done mine, and I fitted a Graupner water pump which feeds all four monitors really well

Hi George,

Couldn't see any piping around this area. I assume you mean on the underside, rather than close to the handrails. I plan on two pipes per pair of hoses so it could look a bulky installation. Is this how it's done on the real ship ?  I had planned on supplying the water up through the support 'tubes' where it would not be noticed, but I'm all for authenticity. Have you got a picture ?

Hi Ken   the ladder that you have made to the fire platform has a curved front to it  and the waterpipes went up the inside of the curved bit out of sight if you study the plan you can see what I mean   A T B   Geo

I've routed out a groove under the steps to sink the pipe into. I decided not to go for twin water pumps and plumbing but to have one supply going upwards and branching to all four pumps.

My next problem is to fit T pieces and elbow joints to the copper tube and I do not know a supplier.  Can anyone help please.   :((      I have flexible tube for going around corners but as you can see from the platform base, it will have to fit under a false floor going on above.

I have sprayed the cabins with my 'Halford's' brown but don't like the shade. I shall be looking around for a lighter colour.  The hull is coated with red oxide and hopefully will attract the PVA glue when I fit the plating.

I stuck a little lifeboat on as it had vibrant colours.  (all show .. me!)

The hole in the bows is a cut out for the anchor section and it's undecided how to go about the fittings, so I've left it while I have a think.   :embarrassed:

Meanwhile I've been straightening up the funnel. This proved more difficult as I had to glue a thicker base on so that I could grind it more upright.  It came out well so I've sprayed this a lovely two coats of red oxide.  (I do like this paint, as I may have said before !!)

( going so fast with the typing, my spelling is suffering)   :embarrassed:

Hi Ken  the nearest brown for the Hibernia is Humbrol Tan  No 9. the funnel looks a lot better well done, I went to an aquarium shop to get the bends and elbows for my piping and fitted a manifold under the platform to hide the pipes.  geo

Great information George, I'll look around.

Time to start plating so I'll be quiet for a while  (week maybe !!)   O0 O0

Started on the planking      8)    Couldn't contain myself. It's going well at the moment and gently creeping along the hull.

I'm using 0.7mm plywood at 10 per sheet and glueing it with PVA  (plenty of it) and doing one row a day to let it set nice and hard.  One thing is becoming apparent and that is that it's quite lumpy. I shall continue and when finished I shall smooth and fill as necessary. Lets hope this is the last time I attempt plating.    %)

Cheers.
