Bullwarks ready

Working on the Pelikaan.

I started on the bullwarks and realized they are the last structural things I have to build. All the other parts have been build and now is the time to put together everything.

Yesterday I glued the spraydeck on the hull (and with this the maindeck and the structure under the spraydeck which were attached to the spraydeck)

After that I finished the bullwarks and the next thing is to finish (sanding etc) the hull so I can paint them.

I also made the metal stands. They are attached to the hull and will be fastened to a wooden plank. It's just the structural part the finishing will follow. The pipes are hollow so I can lead electric wire through them later.

raillings on spraydeck

Had some work done on the Pelikaan. All the details under and next to the spraydeck, the fish collecting bin, the railing on the spraydeck and added the fishingline guids on the deck.

Now I want to finish the inside of the bullwark and then i will add the front piece of the ship to the hull. I have to find a solution for the electric wiring.

Kind regards. Kees

work on the spraydeck

I made some progress on the Pelikaan. Wooden guards and some metalworking beneath the spraydeck. Next stap will be adding all the details and then the opening where the fish goes in the ship. Lots of work to do but very rewarding.

And here some parts of the ship safely in my new showcase. I made this case to protect the parts when I work on other parts.

Working on the aft deck (2)


Today a dryfit for the parts. I finished the railings and some other details. Now I start with the deck and the front of the ship. Nothing is fit yet and some parts need some finishing.
