I use a wood cutting blade in my makita 18 volt jigsaw
Drill with HSS bits
Sanding is hard so cut accurate to minimise the need
Abrade surfaces to be glued or painted, only needs matting off.

I currently have cause to be using P38 and I've been waiting for the opportunity to do an alteration to the inflatable boat I bought from MMB. Ideal dimensions but completely flat bottomed.


So I CA'd a strip of brass down the centre line and filled. This didn't give quite enough angle so I glued another strip of brass on top and repeated.
Just one of many changes to come around a basically sound building block.


Now fits the cradle much better like the real one.

Spray cover added.
It's very difficult finding any one example that fits the bill so this will be a product of imagination. A few more details to add but the paint should transform it.

Thanks Daz


Nice to see the thread is being used for reference as the view count keeps on climbing despite my inactivity  :-))


The weather seems a long way from being warm so I still cannot do the lacquering. I have no motivation to finish the metalwork until then and I'm busy with other things.
I'd like to think I can make it to Balne Moor 4th March with her just for viewing and the social.  8)

John, as Andy has told you the first Balne Moor event is 4th March.  That though is a free sail not a dedicated tug tow event.  The 8th April is first dedicated towing event.  Having said that, there will be a tow in the water at all of our events, so the opportunity to tow is always there.

Coming along nicely as always Andy.  Is it going to get it's bum wet towing at Balne sometime soon? :-))

Not until the deck is lacquered

Definitely on the pull this year  :-))

I understand perfectly Andy. For similar reasons it might be a bit longer before
my winter build sees the pond.  Won't be there on the 4th anyway.

What may have happened to T33cno and his formidable build?

Andy is a member of Balne Moor MBC and recently he had a go at tug towing. 

His boat performed well as can be seen here.  It is not quite finished yet though.

Hi Carl,

The event will start at about 10.30 and run until 16.00ish.

The gates are kept open on event days so you'll have no problem getting in.

Hopefully see you sometime on Sunday :-))

Still not finished but not forgotten and sailed quite a bit this year. Other projects in the way.
Some pictures to view.  Tyres recently added to port side to prevent damage when docking

Thanks Ian. That is the deck house, I've yet to start the wheelhouse  :-))


Just bought this Bosch rather than a proxxon vac. £162 delivered from Czech republic

Bosch GAS 20 L SFC





18 months now and this vac has worked its nuts off. It's very important to clean the filter frequently for best performance. I have just this evening bought another filter for swapping out so I can continue and service the old at leisure.  Cheapest filter I could find was from Germany at just over £20 delivered. I never use a vacuum bag as it seems completely unnecessary.
When used purely for my craft room I have my Proxxon bench sander plugged into the vac so it starts stops via the sander switch
How you liking yours Mark T ?


BTW the very best price I can find today is £193 delivered but some sellers go to £343  {-) <*<

Portgarth revisited.
I've decided to take a break from lifeboats and spend some time progressing this to a happy conclusion.
Long have I avoided the stair and deckhouse roof railings due to the plans being so wrong. I know whatever I do they won't be right but worse with none at all.
So firstly I cannot solder in place without damaging finished paint, to minimise this I have made a template drilled on my pillar drill that I can flip over to do both sides.
The template is used to pilot drill the stanchion holes in place and then to solder them away from the location.









At the same time trying to leave maximum width on stairs that are too narrow. It will only be possible to do the outboard rails as simply not enough room for rails both sides.

A tool tip without intending to teach egg sucking.
I bought this sometime ago from Leeds Model Shop surprisingly cheap.
My proxxon (dremel ) electric drill on flex shaft is just too difficult to control and I could foresee the merit of this Archimedes that takes up to 2mm bits



To drill through the template not shown. (previous post)






If all goes well my railings will be a purely interference fit to the deck without adhesive just like the wheelhouse roof and mast

The template is working great as a soldering jig. A couple of stanchions can be soldered in situ without damage to paint then transferred to the jig for remaining work. Moving back and forth between site & jig to check and adjust.






Here I hope you can see how I have cranked the stair rail outwards to the first stanchion that has a 90 bend at the top. This creates an illusion that the stair is wider than it is.





Some minor adjustment to make but the rest of the cross rails can now be soldered off site
