Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

Back to the stand !

We had a day at the lake again yesterday, well you have to do if its sunny don't you , those dark winter days are waiting in the wings ready to chill us oldies to the bone.
After dinner I decided to have another look at the stand for the boat ,if you look back at an earlier blog you will see it was quite tall and I decided that you saw that before the boat,so I cut off 2" all round and I think it looks more in scale to the boat

Here is the finished article, Harlequin and canal art all fitted back and ready for a coat of satin varnish spray.
Also the foam strips fitted ( a mouse mat cut into strips and glued on with Evostick )

With the boat sat in I think you will see the cabin better now without the stand in the way,









Looking at the last couple of pictures gives you an idea of the way the coaming projects up to take the cabin section on, and the nice clean workshop I have !! Believe me its not worth the hassle to not keep it this way .
