I can imagine the hum of machinery, the odd crash of stuff being lugged about and perhaps the squelch of a radio on the Bridge!

If anyone asks Brian, an engineer will be along shortly to sort the light out:O)

It has been another interesting journey well worth the read.

You should be proud of the finished tug, the time effort and shear bloody mindedness. Shows what you have achieved

A very good result. She really looks the part with all the lights blazing and has been said, it's easy to imagine the sounds.

Thank you Paul. I have another similar build at the  moment, this time its in the other group called 'working boats' scan down the main page. Look for Stril Barents, the real ship is currently showing as my avatar.

Thank you I'll have a look now, Shame you got rid of the spare hull of the Seahunter though I would have loved to have bought that one and made another one from it although after seeing this my skills wouldn't do it justice

A thread like this sure does help fill in the gaps whilst offshore! Thoroughly enjoyed the thread, great build and a great looking model too.
 Any photos on the wet stuff?

 :-)) Have you caught up with my current build, Stril Barents? Its in the workboat section as its more a supply vessel than a anchor handler.
