Great job Bob. That rust on the winch really looks good.

Rob that winch looks excellent! Here is a dumb question...Wouldn't the winch be more effective with the rope coming off the top of the spool? The rope at the bottom when pulling would push rear of the boat down in the water. If it were coming off the top, the moment would be toward the forecastle. I said it was a dumb question.

Thanks Bob, Jerry & Jim.

Jim, No dumb questions here, and you are probably correct. I've seen them wound both ways, but most seem to be as you have suggested, going around the top. I thought it would be safer on the bottom in case it snapped, but what you suggest makes more sense.
I can change it to suit.
I'm surprised when I did this on the other boat that no one pulled me up on the mistake.
And I'm always happy to be corrected.

Bass wood timber boards with a styrene metal frame.

Thanks Mike. Yep boats give us plenty of opportunity to load up on details. And working boats always seems to have so much clutter.

Ted, Thanks. Not quite ready yet, but she's getting there. All the fiddly bits now. Rigging etc.

Finally got the railing on the top, so safer up there now, and the access ladder, a Rusty Stumps laser cut item.







Still to add navigation and search lights and other items up there.

Late reply, Thanks Philip and Dave. Glad you like it.
Have been busy building a cabinet for my wife, so not much progress this week. Hopefully an update soon.

Finally an update.
Have added details to the top deck. Two scratchbuilt spot lights, a stack and a storage box. The stack is a garden sprinkler joiner and styrene rod, and the storage box is the dust cap off a computer cable.







And have now started work on the mast assembly.
