Hmmmm.........

With so many of this type boat built one would think there would be a greater demand for models ~

This is another of Tom's models, he says it's a hull from Ron Burchett, maybe they are still available ?

Please ask him next time you see him !

Her hard work and attention to detail is Much appreciated ~

Here is a link to her "store" ...

It's starting to grow on me now, shaping up to be another good build.

Are you planning to copy Jeannette or using as a guide to your own take on this type of trawler. Have you decided on what trawl rig you going to do. Plenty to choose from.

A fine question, I already knew I didn't want the spray shield on top of the flying bridge and never planned to copy it exactly as the hull isn't the same and my skills aren't as good as the guy who built this model 54 years ago....

There are many real boat pictures to refer to so it will be fun to look through them and come up with a goal.

The build is at a point where the house can still be decided on while other things are worked on so there is time ~

For Sure it will have the single tall mast and outriggers and all of the fishing gear.....

Wow.....that Jeanette is one fantastic model, even more so when you consider the age of the build.

An actual build


Work continues, the drive line is measured out and goes in.

Motor mount made up so the motor and coupling can come out if needed.

The holes in the motor casing are taped over to prevent any foreign matter from getting in during the build ( don't forget to pull the tape off when done ! ) ( )

Some Loctite adhesive is used to set the stuffing tube where it goes through the hull, Good stuff.
