The infills were then glued and pinned in place and filler run through the join line and rubbed down.. the next jobs will be the anchor boxes, bilge keels and rudder,watch this space.  :D :D

Well I leave the country for a week and on return George has a tug almost on the blocks ! The quality of build is always a pleasure to see. No soon is Waverly away then Kingston Lacey is being born.
Looking forward to the next build pics and info. Great job George.  :) caliph

Thanks Brian,that will teach you ::) going on all these holidays. ;)

Now the bilge keels, the position for them was marked on the hull,and 4 slots marked out being carefull to miss the frames the slots were cut out with a jigsaw with a wide blade.
after a little trial and error the correct curve was marked onto some 2mm ply and the keels cut out leaving 4 locating lugs on each.these were pushed into the slots cut in the hull and superglued in place on the outside. body filler was used on the inside to seal the slots pushing it through to the outside where once dry the excess was sanded off.

the anchor hole positions were marked on the hull and cut out with the mini jigsaw,and simple boxes formed on the inside for the anchors, now it is time to seal the inside with some resin so the hull is now in the loft where the smell does not annoy S W M B O. angel angel angel

that sounds like a good idea Peter, she seems to grow very quickly at the moment, she will slow down once the twinkie bits start and the painting starts as well.   all the best  Geo.

Well I have got a little more done today. I have filled and rubbed down one side,and primed it ,also fitted the chine strips these represent the weld lines on the chines, I have also made the skeg support behind the prop,
the deck I shall be making from 2 layers of 1.5mm ply and I have cut out and glued the first layer,the second layer will have the joins in different places,making a 3mm ply deck.
Because she will need a lot of removable ballast I will make the deck centre section liftout with the superstructure and after hatch, I don't think she will need a coaming to stop water ingress as she will have about 2" of freeboard midships.
