I was off work today ........ 'er indoors was at work, so no bitchin' on about noise and stuff. I decided to get a bit done. So, we have....
1. Deck planking lines / caulking finished.
2. Forward superstructure / Hatch cover......... The wheelhouse get's added after the wheelhouse deck and bulkhead are planked with some 0.6 x 6mm African Walnut.
3 Aft Superstructure / Hatch cover.
4. Hatch Cover (Shaft UJ Coupling Access) ....... This is a small box like thing that appears pretty much useless.

.......... The three hatch cover / Superstructures are still rough and will need some filling and sanding .......... But they all fit. Big relief. :-))

I've managed to get a bit more done ...............
The deck has had three coats of Satin Exterior Varnish. Bulwarks are on and the Wheelhouse is built. Window Blanks are still in. I'll leave them for a bit , it'll help with masking............. I'm pretty much now on detailing. (With the exception of the hull GRP and paint).
THe interior of the wheelhouse is shown on the plan as being planked with 5mm African Walnut. But this is going to make it very dark inside if you stand half a chance of seeing any of the detail. So, I've planked the deck, rear bulkead and the half bulkhead at the helm position only. The other surfaces will be light grey.......... I've started on some of the interior fittings ........ and I've found some Acetate for Glazing.
A few photos.............

Busy weekend........ 'er indoors was gardening. So I got to crack on without too much in the way of interruption. I finally got around to shaping the bulwarks at the prow and stern didn't need much as they are a good fit. A little filler in a couple of gaps and now the hull is ready to have some resin and fibreglass tissue on it. I have all the stuff...... I just need a few more degrees of temperature so I can work in the garage............ I made a Battery box from some ply and scammed some self adhesive foam from work........ The battery is a snug fit so I'm not bothering with a retaining strap..... It's not going anywhere  :-))

...........and today. I made up the slatted cover for the tiller / raised stern. This has taken me hours to get right. I cut each slat shaped the ends for the curve cut the bottom square and it's too long..... So I trim just a tiny bit off ........and it's too short.  >>:-( ...... It drove me nuts.............

It's been a while ............. I've been a bit poorly. But things are looking up now. I've managed a bit more on the tug........ The hull finally got it's first coat of Z-Poxy finishing resin. So now I just have to get a coulpe of nice days at the weekend so I can get the tissue on and a final coat.

I've painted the wheelhouse, and finished the wood panelling. I also made up a ladder assembly. That isn't on the plan. The plan has a sort of vertical ladder up to the door which I really thought was rubbish.......... The internal detail is in place and the wheelhouse roof is planked.

The aft hatch / cover is painted.

I made an "On Off Switch Panel that lifts out quite easily so I can get to the back to wire it up. 

And the two lifeboats are nearly done,
