She’ll wait  :-)  Portgarth is almost done.
Although I will likely do the decks on both with 100% paxolin concurrently

Andy, I reckon you'll need the heavy boat lift at Balne Moor to get that into the water %% .


What a beautiful hull :-))  Great work Brian :-))

I'm also tempted, but I'll carry on with my Damen 3111 for the moment.

Cheers John I have lots of work to do on the hull before she will look like the Stevns Arctic, and the drives are still not finished yet it makes me wonder if it would have been a lot easier just buying them. I don't think I will be taking orders LOL

I don't know if you are aware of registering with marine traffic dot com? but logging in accesses many huge photos of her. Not sure if this example will work?

Thanks Jason. I've read the whole thread twice now so seen them and agree too expensive for a pair by far. The Chinese ones should be about that for a pair I'm expecting.  :-))


An interesting attachment on the bow here for some purpose unknown to me?

I have lots of photos of her Andy, I got quite a few from that web site. The drives on the link you posted look OK the link Jason has posted are really good but as you say the price is not good, you have postage to go onto that price so your probably looking at £1200 thats the reason I am making mine LOL

Paxolin deck fixing.
I've had a little brainstorming session and I'm thinking with 6mm paxolin I can connect it to the hull sides by drilling and tapping from the outside along the line of the fenders. The fenders will cover the countersunk screw heads.


I could also do all the bulwark ribs with thin paxolin CA'd to the deck and as everything is the same red lead colour painting is relatively painless in masking up terms

That.s certainly a different approach to fitting the decks in Andy, the thickness of the hull doesn't give you much depth for counter sinking screws in, but if you think it would be ok go ahead and try it nothing ventured nothing gained.

Weather not good over the last few days but managed to get into the garden and got a start on rubbing down the hull, a couple of high spots here and there but not too bad.

I'd better get my sander back from my son  :-)
For the benefit of prospective builders these are the plans you get and very fine there are!

Lovely  :-)  Please consider the market for these. I'd be happy to pay good money rather than modelbau having a laugh price  >:-o
Buy one get one free is comfortable if you can make that work  :-))  Certainly manage £600


P.S. that is certainly a terrific advert for your lathe never mind your skill setting it up! lots of negatives from anti Chinese equipment online but the finish speaks volumes
