Title: MY MUCKY TUG.
Post by: eddiesolo on June 03, 2016, 09:01:41 PM
Big thanks to Jim and Neil for sorting out Mike's last tug.


I of course, had to start to make it mine.  :embarrassed:  The painted surface made a superb base for a painted, re-painted boat and just lent itself to me starting to weathering it.


I am hoping Jim and, if Mike ever does see it...he will approve  {:-{

I love to see a workboat actually look like its had a hard life. You are going to do something with the pristine anchor chain and tow rope?
