Hello. I originally started this build as part of another thread.
I've now decided to separate the builds, to stop confusion. The basic hulls are the same, so above link will tell you how I did those.
But this one has a round stern, so done a bit different. So here's a recap, before I progress.

Made the two otter boards. just used styrene sheet & strips.
Now the fiddly task of fastening them to the gallows.

Thanks Dave, Phillip & Horton.
Lots of scratchbuilding, but it's what I enjoy.

Nice coloring and weathering on the winch, Rob. Ship looks great.

Wow! Very nice components!

Rob, Very impressive...The fishing boat looks real. Could be a support boat to use in a Jaws movie!

The gallows are in place. Got an anchor winch made. Also the deck bollards.
(The hauling winch is not fixed in place yet)
Now just have to make a couple of otter boards to hang off the gallows.

Thanks Mike Thayer, Bryan & Carl.
Still slow going. But that's just me.
Every time I think I'm just about done, I find some other small details I need to add.
And I tend to overthink things.

Looking good Rob.

You are doing a fine job with this

Rob, your vessel is looking great. Don't hold back on the weathering. The marine environment is incredibly corrosive, and the margins razor thin.

Nice build Rob.

Thanks Horton. Glad if I've inspired you to try a boat model. They are a lot of fun, and up to you how detailed you wish to make it. You'll get plenty of good advice on this forum.
Thanks for that Frank. I remember that diagram on one of your trawler builds. I also found this pic from that thread which is very clear. page 41

I don't know if this helps or hurts.

Ship is really looking nice, Rob. Appreciate you sharing your build. I finally decided to jump in the ring, but with an HO scale kit. Have some filling to do on the hull in places. Your inspiration is at fault here, so If I can just hang in there and not get too flustered, I might see it through. Thanks for what you are doing here.
