  • The parts arrived today so I can pick up on the project. I think I will post some pictures of the finished boat when I am done.

    Great, I will look forward to seeing those.
    I see now that Scotland was your vacation. I have been there twice (years ago). My mother was from Paisley. I am in New Brunswick, Canada.
    Hi, I went over the plans and instructions many times, nothing. Then, an idea. I looked at your build log photos, BINGO. They are the "lateral stern bench seats". Fig 6 (Plan 2) and the instructions say to build them from 4X25 walnut planks. Plan 2 1:1 top view shows the profile of the precut parts (FIG. 9) with no notations on construction. problem solved. Thanks.
    Where in Scotland are you?

    That's great, glad the mystery is solved. I remember now that the templates themselves are designated as figures. What I ended up doing because I got sick of hunting backwards and forwards was to take a highlighter to the plans so that the small drawings are more easy to find. I am not in Scotland, I am in East Yorkshire, not far from Hull; where are you?
    Graham, many thanks, good information . I don't know how long the parts will take to arrive. I have most of the smaller components built and am now in a state of limbo.
    The large cannon frame is one of the missing parts so I am stuck there too.
    I do have one question. Part FIG. 9 is also missing, I don't know what it is and can find no reference to it in the plans. Any clues?
    Regards.

    Sorry, but I have thrown all the plans and instructions away - I don't keep them when I finish a build. Is there no mention at all of figure 9 in the instructions? I f so what exactly does it say? I had to scour the plans numerous times and they have a habit of tucking away small sketches in the oddest places and not where you would expect them to logically be, so give that another try. Get back to me. Cheers.
    Hi Graham, I am VERY new to this. Joined to see your pictures of the Armed Launch. Fantastic build.
    Just starting the same kit. Due to a cutting issue parts were missed. Anyway, on their way from Italy however, I can not start the hull.
    Do you think I can do the main deck planking and hatches and install it later? Instructions are not great. Don't want to mess up the order of things.
    Cheers.

    Hi. Yes, you could do that, have a look at my log again to see how I used the deck as a template for the hatch sizes. The plans and to some extent the instructions seem to indicate that the hatches may in fact be recessed, but I chose to do the hatches separately and then stick them on the finished deck. Regarding the deck planking, again, look at my log. The plywood deck was way too small, so I planked longer.

    Looks like I ran out of space. Yes, you may need to plank longer on the main and fore deck as I did, but will not know until you offer up the templates. Suggest you hold off on this until you finish the hull, then you will know. It's OK to work out of sequence in the meantime and the main Cannon and mast are projects in their own right to be getting on with. Any questions, happy to help.
