Nice One
I like the staining on the hull,  proper job :-)),  an Orion mouldings hull?,  I have one in the back of the shed, might just dig it out and make a start on her. Got a few projects on the go just yet though. What base coat did you use before staining.

Bosun the base coats number is 94 (brown yellow) and the wood stain, first i coated her in medium oak, then to darken it jacobien oak and then a final coat of clear gloss for the shine. also leave each coat of varnish for a week or at least a few days to let it harden because we put a strip of masking tape on to do the water line and it took the varnish off.
by the way this boat stears perfectly astern, i've never seen a boat like it, i can do a whole lap of the lake and dock it into a little harbour astern, we think its because of the pointed stern.

Hy Cam
Thanks for the heads up on the colours, :-)) I used to work an 18 foot double bower, with a few hundred yards of trammel net, hauling on the stern quarter no problem on your own, could,nt do it with a transom job, took two of us to haul as the boat wanted to go where it wanted, not to clever in a bit of a sea. Thinking of doing the same paint job on the deckhousing of my Boston Typhoon when I get round to it.

Hy Cam
That,ll be an interesting build, what hull you going to base her on. I have put a short video on youtube ... Working Model Trawler....    I had to put a swinging arm on her to try and get the lift, but she towed alright and the spread on the gear was better than the video shows. The Cygnus 33   ( Maiden Voyage of my Cygnus 33) is mine as well. Keep us posted on the new build.

the 1 i have on the our lass/amant is a queenie trawl with a longer tunnel, used tap washers and rubber bushes for the hoppers , connected to footrope with chain link i, made trawl up same way as a real 1, no mats on it tho, roof felt you could use for mats or find some thin rubber
