Re: SJP 37195 in original crate

Good find. Love the crate. Interesting that they have done away with the butterfly nuts and used square nuts. Also using the transom bracket to secure it whereas before we have seem a timber strut clamped down on the drive shaft. Slot handles instead of rope.

Re: Sometimes you need to buy 3 to get 1

Hi, thanks Tam good data. I've only seen the decals on the tank never stencil work. I have heard of a fuel ratio decal on exhaust! White stencil on bare exhaust is rare but they are about. I have seen a WD # stenciled on an exhaust. Was there remains of a white stencil on "the crated" one?...

I'm enjoying this

Might build one of these after this. I like the mouldy look.

Our esteemed brethren from across the Tasman made some parts for the skeletal which I note you require. Brass too!

Re: Vessel befitting a Seagull at last.

It is not a "straker" but a "stringer" that l need to install on either side (inside) to further strengthen her. Also a bulhead at three quarter bow though l think that is more if l put on a sailing rig. A square sail would look good. Flotation??

Re: Vessel befitting a Seagull at last.

Have you heard of a "flex agent" that you add to the two pack paint? Could be the go.

Re: Vessel befitting a Seagull at last.

Thanks John, the planks are chamferred and glued to each other so in effect it is similar to stich and glue with the ribs acting as a formwork. One reasons I'm enamoured to this boat as it seems be a transition period when they first started using formwood (plywood) but still used steamed ribs and c...

Re: SD For Sale (again) in Scotland

No worries! I'm in OZ so a bit far from me to buy. Nice bracket. Original chain, pin and V bracket. You don't often see those complete.

Re: Vessel befitting a Seagull at last.

Amazingly enough I was working on her today and yesterday. Yep, Chrissy probably is doable. Three planks scarfed and ready to put in and then a few shorter bits to be cut, scarfed and installed. I succumbed to using power tools ie angle grinder for scarfs and multi tool for trimming. Tried to get co...
