I was in Peterhead today (actually visiting Denholm Seafoods and Macduff Shellfish in Mintlaw).  Never seen Peterhead harbour so full of fishing boats (and PSV's)!  We passed through Macduff and the harbour there was chock-a-block also.  We are based in Inverness but some clients are Peterhead wayso I go that route often enough but not as much as when I was offshore.  Shame it was a business trip -no time for photos but if you imagined a type or size of fishing boat no doubt we saw it.  I know the season is up for some boats at the moment plus there's some mental civil works for the fishing industry in Peterhead.  There's allot of boats up on slips also at the moment also so interesting to see hullforms below the WL.

Thanks for the comments guys....


This is just for myself at the moment, I've had some interest from a few folk wanting to buy the hulls, however if i was to sell them I'm not sure people would pay the price I'd ask. to be completely honest printing them is fairly straight forward, however the time if you take to print one hull would be around 60-70hrs, then assembly and some light finishing work. I would be asking around 250 GBP for this hull at 1.10m (1/72nd scale)


The good thing here is all you'd then do is take the hull out the box and start building, all the prep work is done upon delivery. The main reason I started this project is simply because I hate working with fibreglass, the mess drives the wife nuts and I hate the dust.


Guys I'd appreciate the feedback on this topic......

Hi Martin,
You have done well!
Not sure what type of printer your using to arrive at the 60/70hrs, 2.5mm thick, using fusion 360 in a commercial project, or the 250 price tag...


but i'm going to be brave and guess its fdm ? am i right?


I know a guy that could do the glass work for a more profitable amount lol
All the best.
Regards,
Kim
