Hi guys & gals:
As some of you know I am in the prosses of building a barge, with regattas out of the way for now, I thought you might like to see my progress, here are some pics.

I am building the barge with a removable deck so I can change what I might be halling.

Great looking barge, I have a similar one and the changeable decks are very handy.

Great looking barge, ropanach! I see you have your trusty SLX denatured alcohol at the ready there on your workbench too!

It is the same barge, but I did not make the cut out on the stern.

got to have my alcohol, it's like foot ball and beer, some things just go together.

Use the new "build a boat out of cardboard" method to build a barge. Can't be that hard, a lot of flat surfaces with 90 degree corners.
