What's this then?
« on: June 22, 2010, 10:48:51 PM »

I've just aquired this rather magnificent looking unfinished tug from a house clearance. It's 32" long, ABS hulled with wooden everything else. Any ideas?

You can partner it up with Voyagers 'Lady Sharon'.

Then you have Sharon and Tracy!

Uselessat3d

It may be the skill of the photographer, but the masts look as if they diverge
its like looking at a LH thread - it smacks you in the eye.  Ugggggh

Should go well with a CMB40 or similar :}

It's having a strimmer motor in it  :}

It's a Johnson 700 that I got out the old electric strimmer %) Hopefully it doesn't draw to much juice...

Oh and the front mast is angled slightly forwards...

Main problem I'm having at the moment is that it's so tall I've got nowhere to put it beside mum's sideboard...

Make the masts so they can collapse.

Sharon and Tracy- google it and enlighten yourself!
