Roof looked a bit bare so I added a Ventilation/Air Con Room.


These are the Pins that secure it all together.


The Fishtail Rudder.


I decided to cut out the windows instead of painting them on in black.


Doors and Handles.


Portholes cut out.


Crane fitted


Grill fitted to A/C Room and secret Antennae on the Roof ( even I don't know what they do.


Motor is from an Orthopaedic Bed.


Fishtail Rudder and 4 Blade 4" Prop.

And my Thanks must go to Stavros for helping me to get Photos up on Mayhem and to Tugmad for giving me his plans of the boat he made, my build is a freelance using his hull design.

At the moment I am not sure what to add to the centre sections, I could add lots of pipes ( Im an ex Plumber ) or add Hatches.
Nothing too bulky as it has to fit in my Meriva.

Hi Len, looking good  :-)) the prop looks as it could go ether way to me.
Go for hatches that way it stacks easier, our one is in the garage for refit.
Keep pictures coming.
regards John b PS i haven't forgotten the other plans

Len,

Your 'Secret Antennae' are for satellite communications - AIS, Inmarsat, etc. Some of it is required by the IMO (I think), some is for official ship's business, and some is for - Gasp! - the crew to use when they're off watch.

I thought I might get a Celebrity to Name/Christen my Big Boat, but when I got the Blunt end out of the Workshop and on to the workmate a flock of Starlings flew over and did it for me!! >>:-(  oh how I did chuckle.

Does anyone have a close up shot of one of those lifeboats that are suspended at 45degree angle at the back of Tankers.I thought I might make and add one to my build.  Thanks.
