my one has had a few alterations over the years, never used to have a queenie machine, and no net drum and instead of the goalposts, she used to have a single deck crane

I will make this one I have a creeler and I have net drum windows etc for the 1/12th scale model so that could be a build of the future but if anyone wants to buy them they can be free to make an offer

Hi Charlie, we use a radar motor and a reversing switch to shoot and haul the gear, never shot and hauled a seine net with a model, could be trickier than just hauling up and shooting away a trawl haha

Hi Can
I now have the two 1/16 gm33 hulls
Fore and aft Wheelhouses.
I have got the running gear sorted
but the bilge keels are a problem
On the plan I have the fore and aft position
is OK but the distance from the keel
doesn't look right.
Any advice would be appreciated

enjoy your holiday Charlie. Hi Ned are the bilge keels too close or too far away from the keel?

Been on a few INS reg seiners and always had fish still on the deck everytime we hauled ( short ropes so between shooting the Dhan with 1 end of the ropes to getting the cod end aboard 45-50 minutes with 3 or 4 lifts per haul... Bergen bank in August ) , there's also another way of reading the INS ( Inverness ) registry Ned its been nicknamed for decades I Never Slept !!

Maid of Erin CT.116, I built that a year or 2 ago, the real one was built for my great uncle Will in 1948 by J. Nobles, Fraserburgh, long before the Frey was built, I've got a build of it on here somewhere, heres a couple of photos of her, showing the different ways she used to fish, scallop dredging and prawn trawling, the real one also used to got to the seine net in the summer, theres also  a photo  of the real one, scalloping, my great uncle Will Watterson in the wheelhouse and my great uncle Alec Watterson standing next to the wheelhouse in a full smock

Cam.....the grey/black material chosen for the winch wire looks most realistic..... :-)) ....& the layering or walking feed is also great.......Derek
