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 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.

On with the build.

With the weather still bad I've been getting on with the build, The weather forecast yesterday dinner-time stated that we are going to get this cloudy,showery weather for the next 2 month's, so that makes Summer arriving about the first week in September!
This weeks forecast! not much change there then.

Still on with the build!.
First it was the arrival of the Inspectors than got everyone twitching, (Bob and John) these arrived from "The shed" in Springhead, Oldham. New job inspecting Boat Builds so still in their railway overalls! you will prob-abell-y be seeing more of them as the build progresses. The pointy Man not arrived yet, lost his way, you will know him from John's build's and blog's.

Two ends of the net drums were detailed.

Then it was down to the garage to undercoat them.

The drums were then under coated 

And when dry given the top coat,
When the end stands have been top coated,they will be assembled.

The side ladders 
After checking the hull was on the stand at the right level, front 30mm above the rear end at the bow thruster level!.

Checked with laser that the water line was correct as per the plans, then marked out

It say's cut right though the "D" section and then build up again, Didn't see the point in that so "I did it my way" as it say's in the song! 

Cleaned up 

Ladders made in earlier post fitted and clamped on both sides

Ladders fixed and small fillet put in behind the "D" section, to fill the gap.

Then the inside and bits of the outside fillered to make certain it is waterproof.
Just needs to be smoothed out now and that's another big job done, wasn't a big job really, an hour not counting the drying time!.
Well the sun out at the moment will see if it's still out after my shower, and then might have a trip to the lake for a bit of lunch and a chat.
New camera ordered will give you the verdict at a later post.

That's all folk's.


  1. That's more like it!
    A bit of colour brightens up the miserabell weather we're having lately!


  2. I remember you saying we should come to England in better weather!!!!
    It may be better when we come in February!!!
