Not sure Wicksteed is deep enough, Llanberis might be, fancy catching this Stavros ?

    ...Hi Guys...

When I first saw the heading I thought it was the model of SEA GRIFFON that is for sale on E-Bay...
I thought that 560.00 was a bit pricey, then when i saw this i thought E-Bay has gone mad...69,000. for a model...Then i saw it is the real tug for sale...

I think I,ll just go back to bed....Goodnight...

...Best Regards...Norry...

She had a refit at Fraserburgh harbour last year ( that the shiplift she's on in the photo ) and they took several tonnes of mussels off the hull. She had been laid up in Dundee harbour for about 9 years and it was touch and go whether she was to be repaired or scrapped. In the end she passed her DTi inspection but a value of 69k isn't a lot for a working tug.

That's very realistic rusting / weatering on that hull, "mussels" you say.
.... Hmmmm.... anyone know where you can get 1/24 scale mussels?  {-)
