you could run 1 controlling the booms,or 2 seperate boom winches.
I have seen that winch before. Looks great for a scale truck.

They weren't listed when I ordered them either. Send him an email, he still has them.

Here is a picture of a similar shrimper. The Linda Jo is a 77' trawler built in 1972 by St. Augustine. The first picture is an older model. The second is a 2006 I believe.

Thought I would add a picture of a boat from your plans being converted to a gulf coast shrimper.

Jimmy,

Looks like a great project and one I might start as the winter project if I can find the plans.

Wayne,

Nice work on the shrimp trawler.

Where did you get the plans for the "Linda Jo"?
Could someone tell me how to subscribe to this forum?
If you can find a set, Midwest had a kit of their 21'' lobster boat rigged as a shrimper and the plans show the simple rig used. May not be totally accurate but it is a Boothbay type of hull as a shrimp boat.

Wayne nice work on the boat, looks real good! Ed I called up Taubmans for the plans. They were alright but there are a few things on the 2 sheets that didn't scale out right. I just picked one and went with it.

Here is a little update...I got the hull all planked up and ready to go. Just needs a little body work and some glassing. The deck was installed and will be textured when it come time to paint. I have used some textured paint in the past on some other projects that will be perfect for using on the decks of boats but I have to remember where I got it at. I have started building the wheel house and crew quarters and that is going very well.
I built a cnc router over the summer and have finally got it running. I have used it to cut all of my wheel house parts like the superstructure, all of the windows and window frames, doors and door frames and etc. I am going to try to cut out the ships wheel as soon as I get the file set up. We'll see how that goes! I also sealed up the bulwark and back filled it with some resin for added strength.Here's some more pictures of my progress.

What material are you using for the cabin? It looks like foamcore, if so how are you sealing it? I like Gatorboard but it’s so expensive as compared to foamcore I wouldn’t mind looking at foamcore.

Years ago I made an address sign (plate insert) for the front of my house and printed it at Kinko’s on foamcore. It’s lasted through 3 hurricanes and south Louisiana weather for years and still looks great, so I know it will stand up to moisture.

Great work !


jjac, this is Great work !
Nice planking, inner bulwark looks very good, not easy to do.
I also am interested in the cabin material.
You make the window frames ? they look great.
I wish I could braze like that, there would be so much more I could do ....

The material I used is 1/4 sintra. You can get it from your local sign supplies dealer.
