PostSubject: Barnett for Windermere challenge   Barnett for Windermere challenge EmptyWed Jun 12, 2019 7:29 pm

The Falmouth Severn has been delivered and so it is time to start on the 52ft Barnett I intend to use next year for the Windermere Challenge.

Not too difficult to make a start as I still have the patterns for the frames I made when building RNLB Colby Cubbin No3 which was the Barra Island lifeboat.

Link to the build video:      https://www.thercmodelboatforum.com/t1525-not-left-the-country


Build board prepared, frames drawn and cut, keel laminated and set up. Frames glued in place and bracing added.

Rest of the frames to be fitted tomorrow.

All the frames have now been fitted and struts lock them all together at the upper edges. A pattern for the removable superstructure has been made, cut out then located on the top of the frames.

The tops  of the frames that  occur within this superstructure area have been removed leaving a huge hole for access to the hull interior. Extra timber pieces have been added and shaped to allow the fitting of the coaming.

Sub deck of thin ply next to be fitted and prop shaft positions drilled through the frames whilst access is easy.

The frames have now been fitted with stringers, the ends foam filled ready for planking and the stand for the boat built.

The sub deck has been sanded to the correct shape and the coaming cut, steamed and fixed in place.

The positions for the hatches in the deck have been plotted and lined out with 2mm square timber. The rest of the deck will be planked with 2x10 mm strip (already started!!) and the holes in the bulkheads for the prop shafts drilled out.

The rest of the stringers have been fitted and the hull is now strong and stable.
