Thanks

Absolutely superb looking tug there Russ and with two Hectaperms in her she'll do you proud for years to come.  That's a good looking tow as well behind her so you're well set up for some interesting manoeuvres.  I can never make my mind up whether to get into tug towing as my model preferences centre around older steam powered stuff which won't compete with twin korts but I have to admit it is fun when you give it a go.

Maybe I should buy a Southampton first and see how I do with it before committing myself to something like the Lady Maria

Most Excellent tug you've built there !! She certainly looks the part on the water, nice to see some crew on her too, makes all the difference I think to a boat. I bet you're very proud I would be, happy towing in the years to come 10 out of 10 !!!! Dan.

She's a very nice tug and VERY heavy! Hernia is getting better now from helping lift her in and out!  ;D Another pic of her on Westport Lake, Stoke-on-Trent on Sunday with my latest tug Jojo, Dave  :-)) :-))
