Thanks Jerry, Bruce, Mike, Carl and Philip.
I hope I'm not overdoing the weathering.

Started on the mast, so will be working out the rigging soon. Will be a bit different to the other boat, as I will either add side trawl arms to this one, or just 2 lots of gallows. ??

Found this site with lots of labelled diagrams.

I was wondering if you should raise the height of the exhaust stack? Working the lights on the bridge some night with the wing coming in off the stern you would probably exfixiate the crew.

Thanks Philip for the confirmation.

Frank, I've now made a taller stack. Don't want them having to wear face masks.

Not getting very far with the mast and outrigger booms. As much as I look at pictures, I can't figure out how they work.
Lines going everywhere. Would they have pulleys mounted on the mast or the deck. or both ?


If it gets too hard, I'll just make two gallows instead.

Rob, I would suggest you do some sketches. Start with the mast and one boom. Figure out what is needed to raise and stay the boom in position. Then duplicate on the other side. Start a new page with what is needed to deploy the nets on one side then add the other side. The rigging for the booms are rigged first then the net operating lines are rigged.

Yes, pulleys (called blocks) where ever the lines make corners. The blocks are labeled by the number of sheaves and how arranged.

Thanks Phil. I'm really enjoying your boat build also.
thanks for the advice, but I'm now just going to go with 2 gallows, on the one side of the boat.

So have made up some detail parts for the mast, a couple of pulleys, and the 2 gallows.
All made of styrene.

I've added some scuppers (drain holes) on the side. Just styrene tube.
And added a couple of hand rails up the front, just as some added detail. Used very stiff wire, (bent round a tube), so it holds the curve shape of the bow.



And the rigging is finally done. Sure is fiddly.







And I've weathered all the detail parts I made, gallows etc, so can now start adding those. Getting close to finishing now.
