Alan this started about 20yrs ago as a billings polor but my ex had a dislike to it and only the hull survived , so i extended the keel added a bulbus bow and new wheelhouse and everything else you see

more pic's as asked for barry

brilliant, andy.......I so love the dutch beamers.........so much grace and yet business like ships.

they always caused a stir when they sailed into fleetwood in the 60's and 70's.so different to what we were used to.

you've done a great job.

Absolutely great work and the detail is superb. So much typical fishing boat clutter and netting. Gives a real boat feel to it.

Really nice Andy - the rigging and nets give it that professional look

As above the chain matting finishes this of along with the dollies on the codend, also these eurocutters look beautiful,and the wheelhouses just look built for speed

What I like best about your build is your decision to extend the keel and add the bulbus bow, for me that change makes it look so good and it even accentuates that jaunty angle on the wheelhouse.The whole model seems like it wants to leap forward. For my money it's a real winner.cheers

How about a beamer for your next build, Trawlerman.........that would be a nice addition to Fleetwood lake......not many seen down there.........think I have plans for one somewhere.
