As I have said I decided not to use belts for the drives. The alloy headgear is a little bit on the noisy side, I have since changed to nylon headgear and they are a lot quieter, the two photos show the way they are with the alloy headgear.

Just been comparing the photos, prior to your drastic measures, to the 'as it is now' photos. You've done yourself justice there mate - great work  :-))

Thanks lads  :-))  I am going to experiment making a mould of this plug before I attempt making the mould for the Pelagic Trawler.

Andy I have only a couple of photos the one on page 8 showing the amount I removed and this one showing the car filler before I did  bit more shaping, if you have looked at my Pelagic Trawler build it was basically the same method, i made some frames the shape that looked better then fitted them into the hull, I fitted a piece of ply down the centre of the hull to hold the frames in place then filled packed with close foam then shaped and covered with the car filler then lots of sanding, hope this explains.

  Nice work Brian give it a couple of days before you try to separate the two parts this lets it cure the longer you leave it the better it will be  then hope for the best and fingers crossed look forward to seeing the finished subject  :police: :-))

good work Brian hope you don't take it the wrong way but drill the holes for bolting together before you separate the two half's that way it will bolt together perfect keep up the good work.

Well decided to remove plug from mould today with a little bit of persuasion it came out LOL, a bit of cleaning up but I'm quite pleased at my first attempt at making a mould.
Im looking forward to start glassing up my Pelagic Trawler plug know.

Hello Brian,
 it's looking so good bonny lad but then I was never worried about your skill to make one am not into trawlers shame in wasn't a  north east tug still trying to get Anth to make a 1:24 Ryhope that would go great with my other four Tyne/Wear tugs but we all have to have a wish/dream hull I still enjoy watching your next project come to life I pick up so many tips seeing how you have done it again thanks for your build tread.
                Regards Howard.
