I did not notice a web address for the ships boats. The ships boats for my USS Constitution are made from an alloy and I do not wish to use them. Hopefully I can get some to fit my scale.

I also recognize the time and effort put in in restoring your build log.

Well done.

Cheers
Geoff

Hello eveyone,thanks guys for visiting my buildlog.

Planking the lifeboat began,these planks are really brittle,hard to handle them and also need to soak them.

Hi Zoltan,

Nice work. I am building a 2 similar boats for the deck of my Mamoli Friesland. I bought the boats from Russia and had the same brittleness in the planks and ribs. After making them slightly wet I bend them on a soldering iron which is not at its highest temperature. Switch it off after every plank otherwise you burn them. In this way it is very easy to bend them without braking.
Succes and keep up the good work.
