Hull rescue started
« on: January 28, 2010, 08:49:43 »
Ahoy
Here's a crunched/shot/dropped hull I bought off of Ebay...
They said maybe Wyeforce...I dont know and didnt know about the counter fits on the market when I bought it.
So with apologiey to Model Slipways and no harm ment...I will build this from my own design as the Capt. Loyce Omar. (My fathers name.)
Here are the pics of the start of the build
the first of off the ebay page...
note the bullet hole at the waterline

update
general clean up
patching bullet hole
crafted deck stringers and forward deck
motors ordered
superstructure plans...well still havent made final choice. When you dont really have a plan, sometimes there are too many options. I know I don't want it to look like Wyeforce/Southhampton.
Suggestions, the hull is prox 32"
Anybody have any plans lieing about that might be either good thought starters or with modifacation work with this hull...
I'm pretty open here and would love some help
Thanks lads

Looks like a good start, Lynn.  :) :)

Maybe you should sail her in a better neighborhood in the future and she won't get shot up so much. ;D :o

I'm sure that Dan will have plans for an orange AHT he can share. :D :D

Good luck and keep those pictures coming.

Okay fellas
Here's your chance to be part of this deal and give me a hand....
Have been playing with some rough cut out cardboard patterns with a few variations.
This is all just for general ideas...I'm well aware that the scale need a lot of tweeking.

Please let me know what you think

...Hi Lynn...

I am assuming that this is a "WYEFORCE" hull...

I built a 1/24 Scale DAMEN Stan Tug 1906 using this hull...This was called "STANFORCE" I have posted 2 pictures of this class of Tug "BATTLER" and "ANGLIAN MAN"...
I will post you a picture of my build when i find it...

This is a great hull for building this tug...It has a great Air Draft which is perfect for carrying in the back of the car...A single storey deckhouse catches less wind than a 3 storey American type tug...

Drawings and loads of pictures of these popular wee tugs are freely available on the web...

...Best Regards...Norry...

Being in Portland and on the water - should spot some Crowley and Foss types down there plus the local guys. I think there are a few tug model types in your vicinity as well. Lots of ideas there. I have the same hull, just slow getting to it!

Keep the photos coming.

ahoy Fellas
Thanks for the great suggestions
I love Elizza
and Stanforce is a list topper.
As far as what's local, yes we see lots, however most or our are pushers (springer type) doing the barge traffic up the Columbia.
You guys are great and thanks for the input, its terriffic, please continue.
Cheers

Ahoy
since we think this is a Wyeforce hull....could be Model Slipways, which it bought from ebay (my bad) I dont want to bother them as you might understand.
It came with the korts and shafts in place but no props. (see the first pics posted on this thead)
I need to order them and have no idea where to start......
