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.

Hello Frank. Correct. Boy talk about being under pressure.
The 3rd hull was made when I was doing the first trawler, but wanted to then complete one at a time.
It will get done, and I think will be a classic Maine Lobster boat style.
If I go back to that now, then the boatshed build will be put on hold. Too many builds, and not enough time.
BTW, isn't it about time you started a new build. Not too late to join this years Challenge.

I believe, if I heard you correctly, you had 3 boat hulls. Well?

Karl that would be great to see another boat builder here. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Indeed Robert you gave great detail, clear and concise, I'm going to try and scratch one soon for my current dio following your excellent pictures and work.

Thanks Mike, appreciate the ongoing interest.
Frank, yes definitely adding some "salty" characters. One of them might even be called Frank. They are Preiser figures, some with beanies on there heads, so would look like trawlermen / sailors.
Thanks for the tip on the ice. Sounds like a good method
Karl thanks for your kind words. I've tried to give as much build detail as I can. Hopefully some others might build some of these.

Great thread, great modeling, thanks Robert.

Are you going to add a few salty characters to the boats? If you're going to add "ice" a friend on mine crushes those clear plastic CD cases and it looks very realistic.

Thanks Ted. glad you like it.
Although I started with the same hull for both boats, they've certainly ended up very different.
And the names have finished off what has been a very enjoyable build.
Looking forward to getting it on the diorama.

Finally got a new printer. Already named the other boat after my wife.
This one I'm naming after my sister.
And looking forward to getting the boathouse diorama finished, so I have somewhere to put these boats.

Thanks Rich. Glad you like it.
The diorama I'm thinking of doing will include a scratchbuilt, Maine / New England version of the boat house on the Muskrat Ramble.
Probably also include this scratchbuild I did last year.

Wow. Nice work on your fishing trawler. I can almost smell salt air and the fish!
Any ideas what your, alluded to, project may be?

Greg, thanks for following and the reminder about the boat names. Usually I print signs etc at work on a laser printer.
Due to Covid-19, I've been Working From Home since March. (and enjoying it. Don't miss the travel & traffic).
And also we went into a very strict lockdown for nearly 5 months, and my home printer threw in the towel during that time, and I haven't had a chance to get a new printer as yet. Will maybe get one this week.
Not sure in Canada, but here, a replacement set of cartridges can cost as much as new printer, so I need to do some research, on what's available. Too many choices can be confusing.

Hi Frank. I should take a modelling break for a couple of weeks, but where's the fun in that.
Too many models to build, and less time ahead, than behind me.
Or maybe I could spend two weeks tidying up my modelling desk. Who knows what I might find.
And a special thanks for all your assistance with these builds, having first hand experience on trawlers. You are a wealth of knowledge, and always helpful to many Forum members.
