"Things we tow ...."
« on: July 12, 2008, 02:21:24 PM »

Hi all

      Have we ever had a real "things we tow thread?" would be nice to have people post what they have towed either it be with a tug or a model duck lol

Would be an intrestin thing if people added what they have towed and things they have built to be towed, maybe?

What you think?

All the best

Although I can't lay claim to the boat, I can lay claim to having had a hand in the barge, designed and built in a rather unique way. The tug is the Dumas "Brooklyn"

Here's the ferry that runs at Agusta, Kentucky built by Bernie Kain. Speaking of the largest stars and stripes.

I admire that display of harbor and tow also.
Just look at that setup as a goal.
If everyone in the club builds a tow, or a dock, a good set of tows and docks
would be available in no time.

Copy that... :)
