Just arrived from hosemaster. I can bend it the other way to conceal the lines





Also arrived today.
I have loads of Makita LXT tools so 9 batteries kicking about.
This clever fella dreamt up these stealth mounts that can also be worn on a work belt.

Looking ahead to the big bow fender fitting


My first course is deck fitting (paxolin) I am doing it different this time. A very successful Portgarth project largely due to Chipchase advice but this time slightly different.
Rather than line the bulwarks with styrene first then fit the deck, I will this time fit the paxolin deck and line the bulwark with styrene which will conceal the deck to hull joints.
Looking at real photos of the Stevns there are holes spaced around the main fender location that will accommodate screws from inboard into the 35mm hose. Hex head screws may be more realistic.

Bow thruster drive shaft is 3mm
Using this as a guide to potentially suitable motors I've ordered this for trials or stock
