something stupid...
« on: March 26, 2013, 10:18:27 PM »

but we like a challenge.
we bought the canalboat advertised on the forum and promised to keep a diary.
it needs to become the Musn Grumble from sheffield, and on the day of presentation tow the real life version through the sheffield canal with a tug.
we are still waiting for the drawings of the canal boat, so attention got focussed on the Chiba Star salvage tug.
repairing damage from long term storage, reviving electrics and keeping grand dad's project going for a next generation.
pictures will follow soon, the deadline is september but after waiting for half a year its tight.
cheers,
arjan
