My Craig (Willycallum) tug
« on: August 22, 2012, 03:54:09 PM »

Some of you will be aware that over the last two or three years, I have been building the Criag tug from scratch. A wooden framed and glassed hull, built from the 'Model Boats' plans. Here are a few photos of the finished boat. A night launch was done. I hope you like her and thanks for looking..

Hi , I wonder where you got the name from, as a well known bagpipe player is called Willie McCallum, just a thought. Nemesis

Your pool seems to have much the same use as mine, mind you i like being in the pool and driving, brings a whole new perspective! LOL.
