I'm glad to hear the surgery went well and that you are recovering nicely.

these boats were work boats and always in the water. On inland waterways it is usually not far on land and there are also rescue equipment only according to A4, which includes this ship. Much more important, however, was that maintenance work could be carried out from outside on the ship with this ship, or cables could be brought ashore to moor. The German name for such ships is "Nachen or Schaluppe."

I think the generic name for the boat you want to model is simply "rowboat".

The English word for "rescue boat" is "lifeboat" and most tend to be larger and even shaped differently than the boats in your links.

That is your vocabulary lesson for today. Now let's get back to modeling.

Here's a look at my current bench; the curved led lamp is an idea stolen from Chuck. The joint to the wall is movable so I can change lighting direction a bit.

What I really love about the prototype building is it's quirkiness. Please note the skewed wall separating the annex's first floor from the main building. The basement floor is rectangular to the right wall. Neither from pictures nor the construction plans I found an explanation for that.

The roller shutter of the garage is driven by a small geared motor at the wall of the little workshop.

A large cabinet hides it away. This is an quite unusual piece for a workshop but my idea was that they used whatever they had in stock in the early post WWII era.

The cabinet is made from some fine structured veneer and basswood strips. the bench is made from cardboard, photo glossy paper, some iron rods and putty. I was looking a long time for an opticians workshop interior and recently found an interesting site with some pictures: https://brillen-fuchs.de/uns-kennenlernen/bilderchronik-brillen-fuchs/1901-2/. The bench is inspired from this picture.

I don't wanna miss to show the christmas gift I got from Helmut; it's standing right beside the stove:

It came with four sisters:

Helmut provides a post about how he has done it: http://www.finescalerr.com/smf/index.php?topic=1446.msg59797#msg59797. Well, and that is going to be my next project:

Boy, this CAD construction was a two day job with a lot of trial and even more errors  Roll Eyes.
