The rain Finally stopped, time to paint the hull


The rain Finally stopped, have been waiting for days.

Got the anti - roll chines made up and attached, the deck beams were continued forward beyond the point where they will be needed.

The hatch openings were defined and the border for the coaming is also ready.

Got a coat of primer on, ( Finally !!! )

Got a seamless fit on the anti roll chines. Were they a kit part or did you make them? Are they through bolted to the hull?

Rain clouds on the horizon


Thanks everyone ~

The two day paint window is already closed, it will be next week before it opens again.

Just as well, time to put in the aft deck sections and get a start on the visible part of the work deck walls ~

Some builders go with using filler ( and sanding forever without ever getting a smooth surface ) and some cover the rough fiberglass with panels.

Panels make sense here so .020 sheet styrene is used ( later bulwark supports will be added ).

The diamond plate from Hobbylinc arrived, the O scale looks good so that will be used to create that parts of the real boat that use this type of plating.

They chines were not included ~

Surely they will help with stability though during any rough bar crossing......

Gravman, the chines were mounted with Loctite construction adhesive Then drilled and pinned with brass rod in 4 places.

Some painting done, the blue for the lower half of the hull was put on this afternoon.

You are right !

While the hull is drying, some time will be spent on the traps ( creels ), Jerome Morris was kind enough to mail me some Great expandable netting that looks Perfect for making the traps ~

The real boat uses catch traps ( round top ) and live lobster storage traps ( flat top), will try to make a few of both.

Captain of the Eilean reports:

"Working 850 creels just now turned over every 2 days. Worked in strings of 25. Generally 10-12 hours to haul 400 depending on how far from home we are working, so we get home each evening."

The MBD built model in the last picture shows the configuration for this build.
