My Build of the S.A. EVERARD
« on: October 16, 2013, 11:19:01 »
 ^-^ Another one on the Slipway, a 1/24th scale plank on frame of the Thames Craft tug S A Everard later to be the Hazel E.
Lighterman posted a small G A of her so I scaled it up to 1/24th and used the lines plan of the Cullermix with an extra. frame added.

First job was to transfer the lines onto card and cut them out ans set them on the building board to check all was fair,

the next job was to fair the frames and then start on the planking I am using 3mm x 10mm  lime strips for this ,it is expensive but it is so flexible and easy to use that it is worth it, there is about 8 hours worth of planking so far in the pictures.with about the same again to do.   Geo

Thank you George, for sharing the most fine of planking pictures
for your S.A.EVERARD. You have captured its classic old tugboat
stern lines to a tee. Very nice and major helpful for all of us tug
plankers here on the Forum.

Thanks micheal,  well here she is with the planking completed and also with a coat of filler applied and rough sanded, next job is to fix the prop shaft in place and give the insides of the hull a couple of coats of resin.

Another nice looking tug George. The speed that you build a plank on frame hull never ceases to amaze me.

Has the deck have a crown in it ? And don't forget the shear ,plywood only bends in one direction.

 ^-^  Gary,  yes she has camber to her decks and also she has sheer forward, I have used 3mm ply and I find that by carefully nailing and glueing it will bend in two directions quite easily, this one only has a small sheer so the deck went on in one piece, if the sheer is greater i cut the deck down the middle lengthways to allow a bit more upward bend, if you look at the two pictures below you can see the sheer and camber on the deck and the deck beams.
