Great work creating your hull.

I don't know WHAT, and IF, you actually do any hobbies. Showing us a hull, and asking how to make, or fit something is one thing, but constantly just asking for answers to your current thought, or for pictures, so you can see something, is getting OLD for most of us!!! Others, have said so also. I don't know if you own a hobby shop, and you are using us for answers to customer Q&A, or what. If you were building a modern tug model, you would know what all the parts in the photo were. CaptCB

They are called keel coolers, they run the engine coolent through them, to use the cold water, to cool it. Cool engines, and the salt water stays outside the hull. CaptCB

This white strips are there exactly for this, as on the pictures. I am making scale ship, I do not care what for it is there. I am not ship engineer. If you will have questions about for what are some strips on Boering B 737, I will give you good answer,, because I am an aircraft engineer.
