Pusher Tugs / Re: The Tiny Tumeke – 9m Pusher Tug

You're not wrong about fitting it into a weekend, Simon. It's so tiny I was ab;e to make some good progress on Sunday.

Last week I drew up the hull based on various photos and then figured out a simple system of hull profiles and keel. These were laser cut out of 3.6mm ply. The deck was pretty simple as the bow is just a semi-circle, cut out of birch ply.

All frames, keel, construction stand and bracing fitted onto an A4 sheet. The decks and all superstructure components fitted onto another A4 sheet of 1.2mm ply – and that included a few spare parts as well. At least material costs won’t break the bank.

NEWBIES - START HERE ! / Decking plank patterns
« Last post by Toby on October 30, 2018, 13:56:58 »
Hello all

I am wanting to plank a cargo vessel and wondered if any member had knowledge as to whether or not planking patterns were established or certain types were used for certain vessels.

It seems that generally planks were 5" or 6" wide and I am presuming 12ft in length?
But where the planks butt at the ends is it repeated in alternate rows or every two rows etc?

Nice little project Steve. Just a weekend job for you being that small! Look forward to the end result. I'm sure Tauranga will be a nice drive from Wellywood.

Hi George,
Welcome back, it's been a bit quiet without you.
Thought I recognised your work over at Mayhem. Can't be too many tins of that brown paint about.

The superstructure is made from 1/8th and 1/16th ply.
