A Wallsend manufacturer is on a mission to bring boat building back a€?where it belongsa€? through his bespoke narrow boat firm. The father-of-three reckons it is the first boat built on the Tyne in 10 years using a€?old school methodsa€? where the steel has been shaped by hand. He calls his band of helpers a€?The Admiral Cluba€™, as he plans to take photographs of them all wearing Admiral hats on top of the completed boat. At Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, lawmakers heard first hand from scientists who are studying the ocean microbes, algae and coastal reefs to help protect the natural resources and support economic development.
Hawke said she  was surprised to learn how many jobs are available right now in Maine, but are not being filled because of a lack of qualified applicants. Lawmakers took a tour on an oyster boat with Pemaquid Oysters and held a roundtable discussion with more than a dozen industry experts on the marine economy at the Darling Center. Eves launched the jobs tour in January to spotlight the need for more jobs and better wages in the state.
Lawmakers have met with employers, workers, and community leaders across the state in York, Aroostook, Kennebec, Somerset, Waldo and Oxford counties. HMAS Newcastle is one of four Adelaide Class Guided Missile Frigates (FFG) in service with the Royal Australian Navy. Newcastle is a long range escort vessel, capable of air defence, surface and undersea warfare, surveillance, reconnaissance and interdiction. HMAS Newcastle and her three sister ships were the first RAN ships to be powered by gas turbines. Having completed the FFG Upgrade Program, Newcastle has emerged with a new and highly sophisticated combat system and a greatly improved sensors suite and weapons package. In recent years Newcastle has deployed in support of peacekeeping operations in East Timor and the Solomon Islands and Operation Catalyst in the Persian Gulf. Newcastle is named after the City of Newcastle and is the first RAN ship to carry this name. ICOSIS Architects have recently received Planning Permission for two projects on Lindisfarne, Northumberland, on behalf of Natural England and The Holy Island of Lindisfarne Community Development Trust.


The roof is to be a turf and in order to achieve the same appearance as the field and also to minimise removing material from site (skips) the soil removed as part of the excavation for the building is to be set aside then installed on the roof upon completion and allowed to self-seed.
It is intended that the exhibition and interpretation displays are designed to be integral to the building – incorporated within recesses in the internal walls, and carvings, or cases, in the stone floor – rather than add-on interpretation panels. The new stair is located in a central position creating maximum space around the outside within the new upper room, allowing visitors to get close to all windows & views. I have been heavily invovled in the growth of coastal rowing that has been ongoing in Scotland over the last 18 months.
We glued the last bit of the hull (outer gunwale) today - the next job is to get the boat ready for the painting team.
This combined with a modern repair by replacement policy, has allowed both a reduced complement and a high availability for sea duty. The Australian Distributed Architecture Combat System (ADACS), along with an upgraded Air Search Radar and the newly installed Vertical Launch System (VLS), vastly improves Newcastle's capability of fulfilling Navy's mission to fight and win at sea. The ship maintains close links with her namesake city, particularly through active support of her adopted charity organisation, the Hunter Orthopaedic School.

The first is the erection of a new visitor building, on the route between the village and Lindisfarne Castle, which will offer a new focal point for visitors to the island, providing information and interpretation, an area for watching birds, and a muster point for groups of up to a maximum of around 60-70 people.
A natural pond (6) is proposed for the north side of the building to prevent livestock in the field from approaching the glass, without the requirement for additional fencing. The whole – building and exhibition – aims to be both simple and robust, but with close attention to detail. The second project is the conversion of a 1950’s former coast guard lookout tower is located on the south side of the island adjacent to Lindisfarne Priory.
This allows interpretation material to be placed around edge of the space, cast in relief as a continuous tactile band around the perimeter of the building with information on the landmarks and views in each direction with large double glazed single sections installed to maximise the clear openings between the new steel “fin” columns supporting the roof structure at each corner. There is an annual race across the Irish Sea in them, so not just rowing in sheltered water.


Like so many others, he has gone through a€?any amounta€? of redundancies as the once-booming industry declined on the Tyne. Stephanie Hawke, R-Boothbay Harbor, listen to Hodgdon Yacht Director of Human Resources Neal Williamson give tour of company boat building facility.
They said the workforce for skilled boat builders in the state would be growing by up to 25 percent of the current labor force of 6,000. Newcastle is the youngest of the four frigates and was constructed in Williamstown, Victoria with all previous class modifications incorporated. Additionally, two forward mounted retractable auxiliary propulsion units provide a secondary means of propulsion plus excellent manoeuvrability in confined waters.
As part of the proposals it is intended that the new building will work in tandem with the Lookout Tower housing a screen or screens linked to cameras on the top of the Tower, allowing all visitors to the island the opportunity to appreciate views from the upper level of the Tower.
The octagonal stone tower is two storeys high with an lookout cabin and surrounding balcony, providing outstanding views over the island, Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve, the Farne Islands and along the coast. It is intended that the new stair appears like a simple Oak element hung from the main upper floor structure. But the Howdon man - who worked at the now defunct St Petera€™s Yard in Byker - is trying to bring boat building back to Wallsend. There is currently no public access to the building and the proposals are to remove the existing upper floor structure and replace this with a a fully-glazed room which can accommodate up to around 15 people, whilst retaining the existing concrete floor structure, and replacing the existing ladder with a more accessible stair. He has set up a company, North East Narrow Boats and has nearly completed a handmade narrow boat at a yard in the Swales Industrial Estate, near Howdon Lane.
Peter a€“ who has previous experience building canal barges - has been working seven days a week at his yard, and has had some generous help from his mates.
Peter and his mates have dubbed the barge a€?The Bairna€™ but final naming rights will go to the buyer.
