Final motor mount :-))
I didnt like the looks of the first motor mount
Bulky and might heat up the motor
Smaller motor mount
More ventilation :}

Now the jigs for the gearings
I have plan for that one
Ill make it foldable
To removed the couplers
Just fold it down {-)

Hi dave

Ohh I have seen your removable rudder
which I think its smart thing to do :-))
Im still looking for  wheel collars that is a bit longer than the regular one
Why bother? The idea in the sketch actually works. If you want a "belt-and-braces" solution then just fit collets at the top and the bottom of the rudder. The bit in the middle does nothing.

I might just do that but we will see
Still need to order that wheel collars
I tried calling all hobby stores on this island
No such luck

I found similar to that wheelcollars at lowes
I might just use that one hopefully itll be the same size

I've sorted some out for you. Will take a couple of days to get here then maybe a week to get there. SL091R 8SWG Brass Wheel Collets x 4 http://www.slecuk.com/catalogue/Wheels-and-Collets.html
Assemble two collets and the rudder onto the shaft prior to glueing. Remember to grease the shafts and the set-screws slightly before you get your JBWeld out, and roughen the outsides of the brass with a file to provide a good key for the epoxy. Remove the screws and shaft before the epoxy sets up hard, then grind/file the collets to flair in with the shape of the rudder blade. Make sure the screws are on the outer side of the rudder for easy access, not pointing forward towards the prop!

You might yet need some other stuff from over here so we'll leave the book open for the time being, if that's OK? I don't charge interest and you can keep your in-laws, thanks!

Crazy idea that might just work
boat water leveler :-))

Some used dye to marked it hmmmmm I dont like that idea
since you have to ballast the boat to get it level correctly
if your ballast is to heavy
Then you have marked the boat to high

Some use tape idont like it either
That to much hassle for me
Tape it remove it re tape it nope dont like it

So I came up with the idea
Lay down the boat on a leve surface like your table
just make sure the boat is level

Get a block
Drill it right through
insert a pencil
Aligned that pencil to your boat water level
And slide it around your boat
Marking it all around




dont mind my drawing
Im no Picasso {-)

Got it in one!

or you could fill the bath, if you have one, and after marking the waterline from the drawing at various points with a pencil place model in said bath and then ballast and trim the model so that it sits at the marked points, remove the model from the water and then cover the surface of the water with talcum powder; then carefully put the model back in the water. Carefully remove the model from the water and allow to dry, you will then have a nice waterline which can be marked  with a pencil again - no I thought not.

Pencil method is pretty easy on the Aziz hull as it's basically flat bottomed with the w/l parallel to the bottom.
Things with curvy bottoms  ;D  and angled keels are much trickier.

im using 9mm portholes
I didnt like the 6mm that came with the kit



I used 3m marine glue for the motor mount
Caution the vibration from the motor
Also used that glue on the clamp
So those clamp is not touching the motor



So guys whats next?
I really dont have any clue whats next on this build
The beams maybe? {-)

i would consider the base floor which will hold the electrics. You can then plan out the positions and access from above in relation to the openings in the deck.

Told you it was great fun.   :}

Hi ken

Yup it sure is fun now building this kit
You were right the  first fittings are hard on this aziz
If only they have a better place for those running gears

Ok so I need a base plates for all the electronics
I believe you position your electronics somwhere in between the back and the front of the hull
I guess I need to laydown the deck and see where I can get easy access to it

Base floor?
Hmmm ill use a thin ply glued to the bottom of the hull?
This  base floor what is it for?
Im thinking of gluing a ply to carry all of those actions electronics
So it will not be sitting down the hull

Ok the plan for the actions electronics


that wood block can slide out for easy access
and can slide in under the deck
And ofcourse it comes with a lock to hold it in place
So it  will not be sliding all over the place
 {-)

this is what my portholes will look like at night


 :-)) reason why I wanted it a bit bigger
For the structure I  want to use oval portholes O0

st......

1. you must stand back from your project build for a few moments   :o
2. get a pen & paper
3. make a list of all of the steps or build achievement's you wish to achieve...... ok2
4. naturally some of these steps will need to follow the/a previous step  O0
5. remember you are the owner of the shipyard where your AZIZ is being built  {:-{
6. you single handily are responsible for the ....built on time ....built on cost plan of your project
7. go back & re-read the build threads of other members builds of this same vessel

Come back in 48 hours [or one week if needed] with your plan  ;D .......members will try & assist  :-)) if you show that you have seriously considered your plan...........

When all else fails and you really find yourself stuck up a well-known creek without a paddle, remember those four important letters
R T F M:
Read
The
Flaming
Manual

You'll find the deck beams come next and, incidentally, I've no idea why you want to use fibreglass replacements. The 1.5mm I-beams are very strong, easy to make and shape and they're there only to support a 1.5mm deck and cast white-metal fittings - not full-scale containers or winches. Once the beams are in then you''l have a much better guide as to where the radio, battery etc can be fitted.
Your collets should be with you any day now.

Hi dave

I dont know i think those beams are flimsy
And the fiberglass is hard I can actually carry heavy things on the cargo bay

Ok honestly much easier for me if ill use these fiberglass
 :-))
Ill work on my deck beams tomorrow
I guess after that all electronics

oh and thanx for those collets :-)
