Stage 57 contains: Wooden strips 2 x 5 x 250mm.

Take a 5 x 5mm wooden strip from Stage 16, and hold it against the inside of the gunwale. Mark a line on the strip, 2mm below the top of the gunwale.

Before proceeding, look at Steps C.D, and E of the instructions, to work out the lengths of the three pieces you need to cut. Once the pieces are cut, sand the ends of them to the correct angle so that they are flush with the gunwales and the deck. Set the first just under the deck, Set the second support centrally between the two centre gun ports, not 30mm from the gunport edge as shown in the instructions, both supports should end 2mm below the top of the gunwale. The forward support should be placed at the position shown in Step D of the instructions.

Once the supports are cut, sand the ends of them to the correct angle so they are flush with the gunwales and deck. Then paint the supports so they match the colour of the gunwales, and glue into position.

Now take the two 2 x 15mm strips from Stage 56. Cut each strip to a length of 245mm. Smooth the pieces with sand paper and test fit the strip on top of the three supports, sand the outer edge if necessary so that it is flush with the gunwale. Glue the strip into position.

Repeat Steps A to E to create the supports for the port gunwale. Repeat steps F and G for the port side.

Paint the two strips with clear varnish and smooth with sand paper. Repeat until you achieve the desired finish.

Stage complete, carefully store any remaining parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 60 contains: Small Launch parts fret, Wooden strips 1 x 3mm.

There are two launch frets in Pack 6, use the smaller of the two for this Stage.

Each part of the launch is identified in Step A of the instructions, by a letter and a number. This will help when assembling it. Put the identifying Letters and numbers from Step A onto the parts of the launch on the fret.

Use a knife to remove the individual pieces from the fret. Be careful not to damage the wood. Smooth the edges of the pieces with sandpaper.

Begin glueing the parts into B1 in ascending order, starting with B2. Continue along the keel, fitting the remaining pieces from B1 to B12. Take piece B13 and place it on top of pieces 2-12. There are notches at the bow, amidships and the stern, for pieces B1, B7 and B12. Turn the assembly over and apply glue to the tops of the frames, especially B1, B7 and B12. Glue the two B14 pieces either side of B1, up against and aligned with the bottom of B2.

When the glue has dry, paint the frame assembly with wood stain.

Stage complete, carefully store any remaining parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 61 contains: Launch parts fret, Walnut strips 2 x 3mm, Wooden strips 1 x 3mm.

Note - Within the instructions for this stage, all pictures relate to the construction of the large launch with the exception of picture 'I' which is the small launch, however the construction is the same.

Use a file to curve the edges of the frames creating a smooth line from the bow to amidships. Then shape the other side.

Bend one of the 1 x 3mm strips around the bow and move it up the frames to check that there is a smooth line along them. As shown in the inset of Step C of the instructions.

As in Step A, use a file to shape the frames at the stern, continuing aft from amidships. Hold a 1 x 3mm strip against the frames at the stern to check that there is a smooth line along them.

Once the frames are are shaped you can begin adding the planks. Glue the first strip in the position shown in Step F of the instructions, on the step at the side of the frames, leaving a gap at the top , and only bringing the strip to the top of the frames at the bow. Remove the excess strip at the bow and stern. Then apply a matching strip to the other side.

Continue lining the hull of the launch, working from the keel towards the strips fitted before. Cut away the excess from the strips as you go along. Shape some smaller parts to fill in the remaining gaps. Glue them into place. Cover the transom with planks and then cut away the excess when dry.


Stage complete, carefully store any remaining parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 62 contains: Launch parts fret, wooden strips 1 x 3mm, Nails.

Smooth the hull with sand paper, and try to make it as uniform as possible. Take one of the 2 x 3mm wooden strips from the previous stage and shape around the top of the hull planks. You can shape the strip with water, or with a hammer, as shown in the inset of Step b of the instructions. Glue the strip into place. Cut away the the front of the strip at the bow, 1mm from the centre line. This should create a 2mm gap when the strip is fitted to the other side.

Remove the stem from the launch parts fret ( Stage 61 ). Sand the stem smooth. Place the stem at the bow up against the strip to see the fit. Repeat Steps B and C with the second strip on the starboard side of the launch.

Turn the launch over and cut through the frames to separate the boat from the jig. Turn the Launch over again and smooth the tops of the frames with a sanding block. Paint the upper end of the frames with wood stain to match the rest.

Remove the bow deck from the fret ( Stage 61 ) and sand smooth. Glue it into place at the bow. Then cut three lengths of 2 x 3mm wooden strip and glue them into place. Glue pieces of 0.6 x 5mm wooden strip over the bow area. As shown in Step J of the instructions.

Stage complete, carefully store any remaining parts in a stage labelled bag.

Glue pieces of 0.6 x 5mm wooden strip over the bow area. Make the keel and then glue it and the stem into position. Cut a 2 x 3mm strip into four to create the thwarts, then glue them into position.
Glue the bow gunwale and the stern gunwale into position, and then paint the launch with wood stain. Glue the rudder and tiller into position at the stern.

Create six rowlocks in the same way as Stage 64, and glue them into place on the gunwale. Then paint the launch with clear varnish to seal it.

Stage complete, carefully store any remaining parts in a stage labelled bag.
