      First two row's of plating attached with impact adhesive, then soldered together.

      The rivet effect is obtained with a rounded off centre punch.

      Very interesting, Nigel. Where did the drawing come from?
      It is very Resurgam/Nordenfelt like. I wonder if this where Garretts ideas came from?

      This drawing shows the boat as found on sea bed.
      David I think that previous drawing was based on this.

      Close up of the first and second row of plates with the soldered joint, the plates are made of tin plate. I find old gallon cans to be good for this, this is an old paint stripper can.

      First rows completed, the next rows are now tack soldered in place. These need to overlap about on eighth of an inch.

      First plate on the last row. These plates have rivet details all the way round the edges of them, this is done with a spring loaded centre punch with the point rounded off.

      Plating finished, ready to solder all the joints. I use a solder station to do this, normally I use the hot air,but on this occasion I used the iron as I have used a perspex core for the centre section and I was concerned that it might get too hot.

      Plate as cut from the old gallon can, the rust doesn't matter,it will clean up with wet and dry paper.
