I don't quite understand what the tug skipper is trying to achieve %)

1. my knowledge of tug handling is near ZERO
2. his tow line is about 130 degrees AFT & to the port
3. the tug thrust appears a FWD with a slight vessel beam turn to PORT??

I'm trying to resist starting on her now  %%


I think in the long run it'll all get a fine wire wool rub when the top half is painted and re lacquer over the whole

A good day for remodelling my stand from temporary to permanent
A bit of reinforcement , sanding sealer and a fine rub. Just waiting for the felt strip to arrive .
I'm going to make a guard for the rear so I can't knock the Korts off

You've made a nice job of that, you'll have to pop down and show me how to make a stand as that's a job I've been meaning to do but at a loss how to get the curve of the hull drawn onto the wood to cut out  {:-{

Cardboard is free  :-)  practice making templates of the hull shape front and rear then transfer onto wood.
I'll go take a photo of the one I've knocked up for the Rotty  :-))

Left over skirting board. Once you get something close to the shape you can fine tune it when the boats sat on it



I will eventually make a more ornate stand for presentation but this will do for sail days

Great that perfect gives me a good idea what it should be like, I'll have a go at something this week it's much needed as the stand I got with it is nothing more than 10mmx10mm wood made into a rectangle with some felt stuck to it

Another of my inovative ideas. Yes paxolin again. Waste coins from drilling at work make great junction reinforcements combined with resin

A major consideration with super smooth shafts is they can only be installed from inside! they are 8mm but drop to 5mm for the props (6mm is also an option)
