Not much of an update, but have not been totally slacking!

 

The deck beams have all been installed, as well as the covering board.  With additional helpers here, we have done some preliminary work on the building slip (the 2 young ones, 8 & 10, think it is fun to be able to spread glue and sprinkle cleaned beach sand for the base).

Next step is to start planking the hull (and adding details to the building slip).

After several months of distractions (well, 6 weeks with the grand kids doing stuff, including working on Cricket's Pilot Boat Elsa (formerly Phantom), then starting work (2 weeks in Bangor for training, a week of driving 50 miles each morning and afternoon for training at another office, then a week of open to close training locally) I finally got a bit of ambition today to place a couple of planks on the ECB.  Not much to show, but at least the first 2 strakes are lining up well port and starboard.

 

Till the next time -

Greetings, Lawrence, and thanks for stopping by! Currently I am packing up the shipyard again getting ready for another move. Close on the house the end on the month (great Halloween treat!). This time, just moving down the street into a house with plenty of room for us, the grand kids, and a shipyard. Hope to start building again mis-December.

Well, we close on the new house tomorrow.  Then the moving and some remodelling (mostly paint and such) begins!

Site plan - only the house and the garage remain, the others have been torn down.

The new ship yard will be located in the right bay of the garage (for now, at least!)

Good luck with the move. No room for the shipyard in the attic/loft? Looks nice!

 

CONGRATS !!!!!

Thannks, Augie. The 3 boys have claimed the 3rd floor for their "man cave", so I have negotiated 1/2 of the garage from the Admiral inn exchange for a new stove and refrigerator. Wonder what I'd get if I sweetened the pot with more yarn......

Congratulation on the new house Wayne. Best of Luck.  How about a new washer & dryer for half the basement? 

Hmmm...I think that would be a net loss, Sal - it is an old, unfinished, low ceiling dirt floor basement (brick foundation circa 1900).

 

All kinds of suggestions but in the garage you can get away from it all, just hope the garage is heated.

 

Bob

The garage is, indeed, heated - and with about half of it available for the shop, should be plenty of room!  Just means I still need to clean snow off the pickup this winter.

Don't loose your way - or for that matter your models ... - looks rather spacious, Wayne ... but a pain to paint the top ... wish you strength when moving!! A bit far to lend a hand though

Hi Wayne,

 

Good luck with the move mate, I wish you plenty of patience and a strong back.

 

As far as man caves are concerned especially with young boys involved, I'm afraid to say the basement sounds about right, a blank page for them to do up as they please, give them a good project to get up to during the long winter months.

 

Unless your happy to use the garage of course, I mean the loft is quite high and must have a lot of steps to get there.   :piratetongueor4:   :piratetongueor4:  :piratetongueor4:  :D

 

Remain stress' less my friend 

 

Be Good

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
