I picked up on a nice set of woven bumpers on Ebay, from a small crafter somewhere in the U.K. Front and rear bumpers as well as 6 side fenders. Dipped them in alcohol with black shoe dye added, so they're a gray color now, and should look pretty good. They came with chains, but I think I'll replace the chain with some heavy twine, also dyed, and once in place, drip some thin C.A. on them in hopes that it will preserve them to some degree!?

Need to get her ballasted so she rides correctly on the waterline, then we're off to the backyard pool!!

hey I like it what did you use for portholes? I would like to get a set of those bumpers as well but for mine they will have to be roughed up a bit

Hiya. hazegry!!

The portholes are from a hobby shop in the U.K. and are machined brass, with clear vinyl
"glazing"! I think I found them at "Croppers Models"!!?? Pretty cheap, too! The flanges are drilled, as for bolt holes, too Pretty sweet parts!!

ll just a quick update, I got most of the damage fixed before I left on deployment. I fixed the links to most of the pics, its hard to do on this super slow work comuter but think I got most of them. Umi I am interested in some fendering for this boat I think it would finish it off nicely.

Barge! does anyone know how long and wide a barge should be for this boat? I want to build one for it to make it more stable in rougher water. I think I will make it a coal barge.

A hopper barge, that I built measures out to 254' L x 55'w x 14.5' tall
It had a 3 foot bow and stern plate down from the deck, and then
from there, beveled back about 15 feet to the bottom of the hull.

It was a gravel barge.

To scale it would be, 42.3" x 9.16" x 2.41"



A "notched" coal barge for the east coast measures 482'-3" x 90'-0" x 34'-0"d.
Express Marine bulk barge for coal to Florida power plant.

42 inches would be doable, Umi do you think it would help with stability?

If you have enough ballast in the barge, and tie them firmly together, yes.
