Hi All,

Yet another furlough build from my favourite era the Maurice Griffith's Eventide a classic 24' home build design from the early 1960's

Hi Ray, so there it is! I had to go back to Google to find out what 'furlough' was blush . I must start reading more.

What scale are you going to build to? 1:12th? 1:6th ?!!

Hi George,

Sorry I should have explained, here i n the UK 8 million of us are being paid by our government to keep the economy going until our work becomes available again.

Eventide will be 1" - 1 '. 1/12th scale the same as my other Yachting Monthly design Wild Duck 😄 and will use my standard detachable fin keel for sailing.

OK, I was going to mention that it reminded me of your 'Wild Duck' -which also has a cosy, traditional look to it.

Looking forward to even more photos of the forthcomming increase in your arsenal of modelsyes. Launch in a couple of weeks I suppose!

Hi All,

Nice wet weekend weather, good for drafting the sections of the hull for the Eventide which I'm hoping will be a pretty little yacht 😀⛵ it takes as long to draw as the build will !! img_20200725_153427.jpgonce I have all the bulkhead s we will be cutting wood 👍

Regards Ray

Hi Tim,

There are so many classics overlooked by modellers, I will do my best to put that right 😀 Percy Blandford's Lysander at 17ft long and double chine hull has to be done at some stage 👍

Regards Ray

Hi Ray. Glad your all well down there below the Thames.

That’s a nice looking yacht. I have a book somewhere on building yachts of this kind. I must dig it out as it has line drawings in it that could be scaled. I have been doing a bit on the sparrow of late but it’s a fiddly job planking the hull.
I will probably end up with a bit of filler on it. I bought some of the resin and glass cloth that you recommended. Is the resin air cure?

I like the chine hulls as they are easier for me to make. I will keep an eye on the build. Be interesting to see how you make the keel removable.

Hi Bri,

It maybe the same book I'm using Building Chine Boats by Michael Verney 12/6p in 1963 😀

I don't recall recommending a resin ? Which sort did you buy ?? There are 2 part like West epoxy or my preferred water based resin now with lots of coats.

Regards Ray

Hi Ray. I will have to look for the book. I bought the water based type resin.

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
