As for the brass, there is a chemical called "patina it" sold here in the U.S. perhaps it is available there as well ...

Thanks again Friends for all the encouraging words !
This one is almost wrapped up, a few more details and some weathering.

Got some nice barrels form Mack's Moulding's in the UK, well done, hollow so not adding weight up top.

Made a crane-of-sorts out of some old stuff.

Made a tool cradle behind the crane, got a big sledge, spanner and monkey wrench.

Opposite side is a 30 gal. oil can and some hand pump stuff.

Mast is about done, it Does fold down as a one real must to go under the many low bridges on estuaries and small rivers.

Got some hand rails made for swinging in and out of the cabin area easily.

Still mulling over weather or not some kind of samson post should be put in aft....
My good Chum Neil will hopefully be posting some pics within the next few days, I am Still unable to attach images here !

Hi Tim
 
I really like this boat - I like the way everything looks a bit muted and a bit aged, nothing garish at all. Spot on  :-))

Well I have said it before ....but will say it again......"Superb build [& photographs] here Tim B......  ...most life like" ...... :-))
Just 2 questions........ %)
If you need to lift the metal drums overboard onto a wharf.....wouldn't the height of the lifting pole & arm have to be higher? .....so easy to extend the vertical tube with some K&S telescopic brass tubing

Congratulation again......... Derek

The Goon !
And Footski !
What small world it be ...
Thanks all very much, I have been wanting to build this one for Years, now almost done.
Went fo a swim today, got ballast set and she's trimmed, no leaks.
derekwarner_decoy, you are quite observant, the "crane" only lifts the Ale drums high enogh to get 'em on the storage lockers, from thier the lucky crew who got the refills has to yard 'em up by themselves !
 
Cheers all.
