Hi all the superstructure on the Caroline was not the easiest to build, here are a few photos showing the progress so far.

Nice work - don't you love working with multi angles!
I built a similar one for my Nanuq and am contemplating having another go at it. Ray built a similar wheelhouse - he liked the shape of these as well.

Hi Ian, just seen your post on the Caroline build, the bow thruster is made on the same lines as the Z drives but easier. If you look at the photo showing the bow thruster  you will see that I have used a 15mm copper T piece with a small section of copper pipe soldered in the end that holds the vertical drive shaft. I turned the end caps in the loath to hold the 10mm bearings; I used 2 bearings on each of the drive shafts. The shafts are m4 stainless steel and the bevel gears were purchased from Duval Gears. Hope this helps. 

Cheers George,    you are right about the windows very time consuming,
Brian

Brian,
Thanks for that. Why did you choose bearings over bushes? And, how did you keep the water out?

I found that it was better using bearings to keep the bevel gears running true. I keep them packed with grease to keep the water out. I have not had any problems with this method up to now.

Ok, sounds good.

 Did you step the driven shafts at all in order to stop axial movement? Or did you rely on grub screws(?) or...?
