It appears for about an hour a few times a day, I have to see my Doc next week I'm hoping it's wax build up on ear drum and a flush out will fix it I've never experienced it before.

You are lucky Damien, if it does for you.

I am plagued with it 24/7/365 ............just a constant ringing in my ears.......especially at night when all is quiet.

I suppose you grow to ignore it most of the time.

Some times just like pressure in the ear others it's so loud it drowns out my hearing aids, tv & workshop tools.
See the Doc tuesday for blood test results so I'll tell her whats going on.

Trimmed to shape, got a little heavy handed sanding them and managed to delaminate  the top layer of the port side 1.5mm ply deck.



To stiffen it up I rough cut some 1.5mm ply scrap and glued it to the underside of the planks a little over size as seen in first pic.



The gap filled with light weight filler ooop's looking at next pic shows a glaring fault in starboard hull shape at deck level more filler needed.

Second coat of high build primer and a little spot filler.





Prior to priming I applied light weight car body filler to the Starboard side  stern at deck level where she was out of shape.



The 29c day turned to rain stopping another coat of primer.

Outside hull had final coat of primer and upon checking the plan my forward deck planking goes 30mm too far astern a bit of cutting tomorrow, also the stand I made her will need significant lowering of the side retainers as they will currently interfere with the hull to underside of deck braces.
On the up side I've marked where the braces need to be will mark the waterline tomorrow with a liuttle help from my missus.

Decided to get a start on the wheels only to discover the 24 wheel blades and the wheel inner discs have disappeared started cutting new ones from 2mm polystyrene only to discover the plastic handle on my guillotine flexes and cuts out of square the square & the base also flexes so mounting on 12mm MDF coming up Hmm perhaps it's more for balsa.
Machined 4 new 60mm inner discs on the lathe.
Just awaiting arrival of 10mm dia brass from Hong Kong to turn the wheel centres.

Decided today was start the wheels day whilst searching for the pre cut spokes I pulled the brown paper from this pill bottle.

 

And what did I find? The lost wheel centres and floats.



Subsequently found the spokes and built one rim.

I thought so Paul I went out before dinner and turned it upside down to build the other thought I'd done well until after dinner I went out to assemble the 2nd wheel to discover I'd put the centre  disk in place but had forgotten the 2 rings and glued the together 40 minutes later I had salvaged the original half had to cut another centre disc.

The original half with the remains of the 2nd centre.

 

The new centre and 12 new spokes.

First wheel ready for assembly.

 

First half of second wheel done the arrow on hub is a key for later assembly it will be turned spokes down and the other half is built on top when assembling the arrows assure perfect alignment of the paddles.



All four rims complete.

3 sets Barrie.

I had intended using a burr in my Dremel to put grooves in the mating surfaces prior to epoxying now thinking I'll drill 1.5mm and use stainless pins.

The drilling was unsuccessful as it was impossible to a centre punch close enough for drilling the pin holes, so cut slots and silver soldered the cross pins in place.

And i'm stressed buy it lol


Went out to see how the first half wheel to centre gluing went, not good if it wasn't a fire ban day I'd put my propane torch to the whole shebang some how even with the wheel weighted to stop warping when I spun in lathe to check it and it has a 4mm wobble.
36c in shed to hot to bother with it today tomorrow is to be 24c perhaps look to see if I can drill the centre from the wheel and try again.

Feeling calmer I thought about it and tomorrow I'll chuck the brass centre in the lathe and then grind a parting tool point of 1mm and 6mm cut depth to separate it from the wheel  with minimum polystyrene loss.
And have another go at the bludger.

A much better outcome today, the parting tool was efficient to remove the wheel from the centre hub the removed Polystyrene replaced by 5 min epoxy.

Both wheels assembled several of the floats are not quite 90 deg to the rims some how a couple of spokes must have moved whilst drying.

A complicated job there Damien, they look ok to me, it will still look ok if a couple of bits align wrong. In reality I bet there was a margin of error or a in any case they would have had repairs done over the years just to get her moving again. 2thumbsup

Wheels temporarily in place, a few changes to the wheel area as with wheels hard against the hull the the wheels are still proud of the deck cabin lines.
As seen in this pic.






Rudder servo installed, as there is no room for a tiller arm I make a small brass pulley and use cord from both sides of the servo arms the other thought is a short piece of bowden cable.

Finding the control tube inner & outer binding when bent to shape I needed to change to cord control I re-positioned the Rudder servo to the centre line and turned 2 x 9mm dia pulleys that will sit either side of the tiller arm.
I use the brass section of an electrical terminal block and some brass sheet for the tiller arm.

This pic shows the pulleys and tiller parts.

I can see that reading through your build log, but you are up for it and overcoming all the problems, health, extreme weather, materials not co-operating as we would like.
Thought, you're are not expecting a plague of Locusts or Termites about now?  lol!

It always gives me a lift to see your work and how you did it your way. 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup
