I'm hoping to wash it with trichloroethane later. I hope she doesn't notice.   :}

Nice to hear from you Derek. Going to try for a sail tomorrow.  Might take some pics.

Anyone know the colours of the three vertical lights on the main mast please. ?


ken

Ps ....

I've found out from Brian Young's post in 2007  (yes I'm thorough ) that all Tug mast lights are White

Thank you Brian.  :-))    A mine of information.

Today I've been busy fitting the supports for the upper Bridge house. I've cut the handrail to go around the front wind break.  Twice as it turned out because it didn't hold very well on the thin plastic. I had to fit a wooden bar on the inside edge to make the support wide enough to support it.

I then made some more riveted strips and glue them in position.

Now I'll have to paint it white to cover the sticky finger glue marks.   %)

I then made two rung type ladders and glued them together. The lifeboat rope fittings were then put into place and some oars found that did the job, so were painted white.

As an aside, I ended up with super glue all over my finger tips and tried the Wife's nail varnish remover.  Not a success, so filed down my fingers to clear the stuff !!  Any suggestions please.

Kenny,
You can buy superglue release agent.
It is good, but degreases your skin very very too.

Ah!!  I thought there might be something Bob.  I managed to get a lot on my skin this time and it spoils my Piano playing.

What happened was that the bridge supports are hollow square tubes. When I super glued the top section and turned them to fit vertically, it all ran down the tube straight onto my hand.   <:(           

 Go on  start the name calling   :}

The ladders have been painted  (why did I choose black ?) and fitted.  Might have to change the colour.

Hi Norseman

The Brown paint was Triumph Russett Brown.

I shown my recommended best white for boats and that is Vauxhall Glacier white. This shows the best white because there can so may shades. Some can make the boat quite drab.

Hope this helps.  I'm off to repaint those ladders a light brown. Couldn't sleep for worrying about them.   :}

I've been busy fitting the railings and the tiny pieces like air vents. Thank you 'Mastermind game' for the correct shaped mushroom tops.   :}

I've rigged the lifeboats and had nowhere to rig the ropes so I've made some cruciform bollards and waiting for the paint to dry.

The masts have been wired up and the lights fitted. Now glued into the boat and ready to connect.  The light show is next blog.   O0    16 lamps so far and coming along nicely.  Oh, and I've put on her name .  I think we're nearly there.   :-))

                                  The Launch

Well it was off to the lake today as the weather was great.  She tested out wonderful and the power was quite remarkable.

She sits quite high at the moment because I still need another 12 volt battery and smoke machine, with it's water,  to bring her down a bit more.

I took some movies and joined them up for my 'You Tube'  film which I then spent the afternoon making.

Here's the final 'stills'

Thank you for following this build  for tomorrow we start the  "Gry Maritha"

Thank you Mr Crafty.

The music is  'Meditation' and I think it's by 'Thais' and is a modern take. I'm not sure where my collection came from.  (I'm sure You Tube will let me know for any copyright issues.)  I'm working on the theory of out of date music.

ken

ps   you could tape it from the film before they rap my knuckles.

It's 5 megs on my machine so I can't send it to you.  My only suggestion is to use a sound recording device with microphones. Either tape or disk.
It is possible to save a You Tube film but this is beyond me as well.

Hey Kenny

It downloads easy and I have used it to pick up hull plans (real ones) from a guy in America. He put the stuff in the box and just sent me a link to it - I took them out the box - simples O0. I haven't tried putting stuff in yet but I am going to try that for Carl (that's Carlmt on here I think) soon.

Hi,

Its Meditation from the Opera Thais by the composer Massenet.

Right enough it is a lovely piece of Music, seeing as Kenny likes his Organs, I have Reg Dixon playing it, along with others, Von Suppes Poet and Peasant Overture on the Blackpool Wurlitzer.

Peter.
