  1. Hey Steve thanks for your opinions. Unfortunately there is no such a drawing(detail of the gangway). I suppose as you said that this a seperated deck section for passengers to step on. But why a seperate drawing if not that complicated ? Why seperated deck section if level with the deck ? How does it look like ? Don't the similar vessels have such a gangway ? Questions, questions,..
  2. I'm seeking info about a gangway on a deck. The vessel is a passenger ferry paddle steamer. On the drawings, there is a gangway on the deck crossing midships aft/front the paddleboxes. I'm trying to find out, how does it look like? Is it a simple second (higher) planking on the wood deck ? The only cross section view does not tell much but brings up one more questions i.e. "is there a wood planking around the engine room?" Thanks again in advance for your opinions which are always very helpful.
  3. Thanks for the ideas. There is not enough info on the drawings. It's best to have photos/drawings of relevant similar vessels. I'll try to make a new topic about this.
  4. Herr Falck yes, its a passenger ferry. Steam paddle ship. I've attached the other drawings. The gangway is on where the passengers walk to the saloons.
  5. Still trying to clear up the drawings, my second topic is the gangway on the deck crossing midships aft/front the paddleboxes. Again the same question arises. How does it look like? Is it a simple second (higher) planking on the wood deck ? The only cross section view does not tell much but brings up one more questions i.e. "is there a wood planking around the engine room?" Thanks again in advance for your opinions which are always very helpful.
  6. Hi Nils, Hallo Herr Falck, thanks a lot for the photos and info. I'm starting to picture it.
  7. Hey Steve, thanks a lot. Your sketch seems to be the most probable. By the way I liked your build log.
  8. Thanks a lot for the comments. These help much. I have a sketch. It's maybe similar to this.
  9. Hey Kurt thanks for the response. That's what I tought at first but on the second photo there are two crossovers over this part. So I assume it's above the deck level. But still not exactly sure about it.
  10. John, thanks a lot for the photo and info. Let me ask you, do you know more about this cover other than this photo. Is it simple wooden board following the railing? Are the stanchions sitting on top of this board? Or maybe it's in front of the stanchions. Do you have any idea. I searched many books and drawings, could not find anything.
  11. Dear friends, I have some original drawings of a steam paddle ship. There is a point on the drawings which I have diffuculties to visualise as there are not sufficient info. It's steering chain/rod cover. On the drawing only on the top view its indicated that there is teak cover over steering rod but no other information on other views. I appreciate any opinion about this, how does it look like.
  12. Hi Ferit Kutlu, thanks. That's because I'm building in a room/lounge at home. Actually I would like to have a small milling machine and a lathe but they are not an absolute must.
