    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    Just got done ordering the lettering for the boats name.
    "Satisfaction"
    This was the flagship of Capt Henry Morgan.
    Here is a little info,

    In the 17th century, Captain Henry Morgan sailed as a privateer on behalf of England, defending the Crown's interests and pioneering expeditions to the New World. In 1671, in an effort to capture Panama City and loosen the stronghold of Spain in the Caribbean, Morgan set out to take the Castillo de San Lorenzo, a Spanish fort on the cliff overlooking the entrance to the Chagres River, the only water passageway between the Caribbean and the capital city.
    Although his men ultimately prevailed, Morgan lost five ships to the rough seas and shallow reef surrounding the fort.


    Also ordered the extra lights for the deck lighting.

    Test run soon.

    I've been watching that one. Neat idea, just wonder when I get to reverse, needs an indicator so my brain doesn't get dizzy(er).

    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    That's fine, but they should be at the same position port and starboard engine I would think, and there's no trim tabs to make it so.

    Doors, windows and exhaust installed.
    I think the exhaust is too tall.

    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    Wouldn't you want the exhaust taller than the nets so they don't get exhaust soot on them?

    Rebuild the exhaust.
    The exhaust is set into a block under the roof so that it is removable.

    If you look at some pictures of different boats, some are very short and others as tall as the rigging.

    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    Tall exaust keeps the fumes off the deck"health risk" diesel fumes can cause cancer. Also less noise on the deck=better working conditions
