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.

More veneer

Yesterday did a bit more veneering on the ends and inner struts for the superstructure 



Then whilst this was drying, took Pepe over to Debdale  park

Is he abandoning me !
Bigger than Daffs, just!














Then it was back to the Narra Boat !

Added the strips to the sides and if you are thinking that they don't look equal top and bottom,  they will when the roof goes on and adds that other 3mm above the windows.

Side strips added
Going to try and fit the roof on, so that its removable and you will be able to see the interior fixtures and fittings , we shall see if its doable, just getting the catches fitted so it will look right hey.

Off now to veneer the inside of roof panel, then decide whether to discard the wooden floor panel or to go to a plasticard one to build the furniture onto easier!.

Watched "Narrow Boat" on Quest in the afternoon and there was Alan Herd the presenter having a go at making the rear fender for his boat , will have to have a go at that, even though my mate Bob has bought me a
 "Bag of bumpers" from Ellesmere show.


Club Night to-night, is booked as an Air boat talk , but may be the film show cancelled last time through ill health.
