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.

nice job Brian hope you didn't have many problems separating the mould I know you have other things on your inventory so if your not working on the Stevens straight away put it back in the plug helps keep it's shape and stops it twisting and protects the plug
                                                         all the best Brian and take care :-))

Thanks Tom, it took a bit of persuading but the mould was OK, I have a few others I'm busy with LOL, I will take your advice and put it in the mould for now  :-))

I don't think so Howard, I think the three projects i have on at the moment will keep me going for the next few years  :-))
I looked at her history, she was built 1943 in Alabama long before France Fenwick Tyne & Wear Co Ltd bought and registered her at Sunderland
and named her Ryhope.

 Yes I think there was five all together all name after parts of Sunderland and first diesel tugs on the river Wear, I have four !:24 Tyne, Wear Tugs all different, Ryhope would will be my last dream tug might have to copy you and make my own give my plans to Anth when I bought my Cragsider so will have to buy another set keep up the great work such an enjoyment watching your builds.

I was hoping to carry on with the Trawler hull today but unfortunately i am waiting for gelcoat, so i decided to start on the Stevns bulwarks.

Hi Brian.
I like how you do yours makes a lot of sense if you ever have to change the motor or tight for space I hope if you don't mind me copying it

Hi Howard I have messed around with different set ups over the years and find this the easiest way, as you have said if any maintenance is needed easy removed, I don't have any problems with any one copying the way I have done mine  :-))

Had a break from the trawler today done a bit work on the Stevns, I need to get the deck supports fitted so decided to cut the 14 wash ports out to help line up the deck supports. I also made the wash port inserts.

Those bilge keels do present difficulties for us all but you appear to have been successful - I'm guessing that you've anchored them from the inside?

The keels are metal Ray, the photo I have attached is one of the keels I made for the trawler, the keels on the Stevns are made in the same way. Small holes are drilled into the hull them the pins pushed through then bent over in opposite directions then filled with car filler it makes a really strong job.
