Hi George,
    Thank you so much for the "proper" drawings very helpful, means I can now get it something like it should be. I'll keep you posted.
        Cheers,
               Peter. :)
The photo is my Lowgarth Mountfleet models but my own design and build (the kit quality and fit was very poor) I scatch built the superstructure from photos of the Foylegarth and scaled it off the figures. Sails superbly.

   Hi all,
        Progress has slowed down quite a bit due to the cold weather, I have insulated my shed so its a little bit better. I made some seats and a console for the wheelhouse and a desk for the chart room and added a telegraph next to the wheel. The masts are now complete and ready for painting, I just have to figure out where to route the wiring so its not on show.
        Merry Christmas to you all and all the vey best for 2015.
         Cheers,
              Peter. ;)
P.S. Site won't let me attach the latest pics, sorry.

   Hi all,
         Bingo success! here's another photo. No work today as the weather is horrendous, big waves on Marine Lake Southport.
           Cheers,
                Peter.

     I'm a bit confused here as the site is letting me post one photo at a time but not three as normal! Her goes with two.
        Cheers,
             Peter.

  Had enough now yet another week plus and no pics! sorry everyone who has to sort it but enough is enough. 20/20 hindsight I should not have become a site supporter but hey you live and learn,
   Very sad,
       Peter.

These are pictures of Peter's Sun XX1. He has been working away on it for quite
a while is his cold shed. Come to think of it, we all would love to see the sun and
feel the warmth around this neck of the earth.









I posted these for Peter. I'll let him explain and all,
Michael
Yet another case of why men and women go down to the sea in ships. . .A pleasure to be here and smell the salt air. Thank you Tugboat Forum. . .Michael in Anacortes, Washington www.twotugboats.com

  Hi all,
       Thanks to Michael the latest pics of the build are now posted your help is much appreciated I just can't seem to post any pics and all the ones already posted cannot be looked at. Maybe its the Atlantic at fault! ah well back to Jurassic Park to feed the other Dinosaurs.
     Cheers,
          Peter.

  Hi George,
       You are right that is a Kort nozzle but there is a saga to it. It came as part of the Lowgarth kit but was such poor quality and finish, it was oval, that after re fibreglassing and filling it three times I gave up and ordered a new on from Mountfleet the kit supplier (no offers of a free replacement by the way 20.00 + postage). If you compare it to the Kort nozzle from my Norton cross its like comparing a Tatra with a Rolls Royce. Well spotted.
     Kind regards,
           Peter. :)
