Roger is right....i have mine planked and fiberglassed inside and out, it measures about 48 inches. make SURE that you get the curve on the main deck right.....at the rear frames the alignment is very hard to correct after thehull is built....building the frame was easy.....correcting 1/4 of an inch off in the alignment brought me close to tears....lol....dumas's instructions are not the best so take your time and try dry fitting until you are sure everything is right.....to get the hull planking on i soaked the wood in boiling water with a bit of ammonia....then used pins, clamp and every bit of canned goods in the house to hold it in place till it dryed before glueing.....Roger will probly have better ways to do this but i had i time getting the bow pieces to fit.....also i tossed the dumas wood for the bow planking and cut new ones from bass wood....i finally have a nice hull and most of the first level assembled.....i am looking into other drive options as i dont like the belt drive....might use the drive system for the other stern wheeler dumas makes....one last thing is that the people at dumas are very nice....i call them every time i have a problem and they are always helpfull, if you have questions i wouldnt hesitate to ask

yes i do want to be kept up to date on the ssy hull build.....i havent done much with mine yet as i am still looking into information on the best way to do things.....

one is a dd hull that i got from ebay and it has motors and running hardware installed and the deck supports in the deck itself is cut out.....i am trying to figure out how to make the rudders removable for service without cutting a hole in the hull......kurt from mwuw had a good idea he sent but he used it on a much larger ship....the dd rudder shafts are to small to use his suggestion effectivly i believe...if you have any ideas i would love to hear them

i am looking at digital cameras as i think it may be a good idea to post some of my problems and solutions....maybe it would be of help to someone else

on your darby did you ever get your pitman motors installed??? i am not sure how to mount them properly and was waiting to see yours sad.gif

hopefully you are taking pics of your queen build, as it is a fun boat to build and i am sure alot of people would love to see it.

my next problem to tackle is drilling the rudder shaft holes out in my queen and getting them strait in referance to the hull.....havent figured out how to level the hull properly yet.

ok if you havent taken your queen off the board yet, just remember that when they say the hull curve has to be right....they mean it....at the stern were the deck curves up if you get it right the 1st level lines up nicely so be sure to double check the lines,.......

i am starting to add my 1st level now but am dragging my feet as i am still trying to find drive options.......

OH and i am so mad at you......i bought the mr darby as my first kit so i could follow your build and then you broke it.....AAAAHHHHHGGGGG!!!! i waited for over a year for your updates....lol....

i was gonna do a crockett but decided that i wanted to follow your build on the ssy hull so i bought 3 different hulls of my own....a gearing a fletcher and an iowa so i am waiting with growing anticipation for you to start on yours.....you have the best build site i have found on the internet biggrin.gif

it seems like it should be easy to find i gear box setup that would work, and i have seen some nice looking wheelers on the internet that people have scratch built but no one talks about what they use for a drive setup sad.gif ....is your queen built yet?? if it is i would love to see pics of the interior layout and supports......my hull is done and i am starting on the first deck so i am decifering the plans for it now.....the instructions are terrible....lol....also what do you seal your wood with??? i use west system on everything and then sand and fill it till its smooth then do my assembly.....it works well but is time consuming
