2687River Belle takes shape
- Mar 19, 2010Hi All,
Those who have been members of this Group for some time may recall that I
started building the bigger version of Atkin's Tunnel Stern, "River Belle",
some time back.
By way of an update, after eighteen months the hull is now finished and we
turned it "sunny side up" last week - it's quite a sight.....
Mr William's design specified sawn frames and double diagonal planking of
course, but we have used epoxy & marine ply on sacrificial station moulds
and it has come out very well. We also made the sides curved for clinker
planking (sorry John!) and that too, looks really good.
I have attached a couple of photos for those interested and I have been
maintaining a construction log at http://riverbelle.boman.biz as well if you
want all the really gory details together with lots more photos.
Now for the fitting out......
Adelaide, South Australia
