Hi Larry.
I will post a pic of how my boat deck lifts off so that I can get to the running gear,my portholes are just brass type eyelets from any hardware store,and my lifeboats I traced out the shape of the boat from the top view and cut out the shape in thin ply I then traced the shape of the keel and did the same and glued them together and filled them in with balsa and then did a lot of sanding and shaping.
Good luck.

Hi Larry.
I made my funnel out of 1"3/4 wast pipe and it works to scale fine and the cap at the top of the funnel is the shaped washer for waste pipe screw joints.
Has you can see from the pics I left my boatdeck supports attached to the hull I think this was a mistake I sholld have attached to the boatdeck because when working on the running gear they are a pain.

Hi Larry.
Looking good so far.
For the supports I used matchsticks from the model shop I bought a huge bag for about 4 quid it was the only size they sold,but now I have a huge bag of matchsticks that I will never use,so not one of my best ideas.

Hi Larry.
For the top rail I used I think 3mm plasticard it is easy to cut and shape and with super glue it stuck well to the hull.

Hi Larry.
Just a couple of things that may help you,for the mast stays I used a type of thread with rubber in the middle it does not sag like normal thread after it gets a bit damp,and for the galley funnel and the foc'sle funnel I used the middle of a Biro pen and super glued them.

THANK YOU DAVE,
                         A good site , looking for life boat davits now,  why don't the plan draftsmen draw sections ? it would make life a lot easer
              thats why i like James Pottinger plans they cover the complete boat from stem to stern :-))       Larry... .

Because Larry,
it takes time to do all the details, and time costs money. Most draw a model boat, with enough to get the outlines right, and then assume the modeller will have photo and other evidence to fill in the gaps.
Draughtsmen, like James Pottinger, draw the original boat, and record as much detail as they can as a truer record of the original boat. Usually, but not always they are also paid to produce them, where as the model draughties usually work for themselves or other model business', hence the limiting budget.

Hi Larry.
I cannot find any paperwork on motor but it runs on a 12volt 15 amp system I used an 8 inch prop shaft with a  3  blade right hand propeller I think I could have used a 6 volt system but with the extra power it is handy to be able to get you out of trouble if there are sailing boats on the pond.

Hi Larry.
It's beginning to look the part,it's at this stage I think that your enjoyment begins because you can see what it is going to look like,but I suppose there are going to be a few frustrating times ahead.
