Fabulous details, the backfilling on the hatch really brought it to life ~

The railing atop the cab came out Very well !

Looks as if you've got a bit of good weather ? ( shop door open, ax at the ready ! )

Some lights, what a pain that was running the wires through the roof cavity to a common point.

Hi Phil,
     Having just followed your build post from page 1 to this one I am lost for words to describe the first class quality of your work. The detail and skill involved is superb, I started boat building last February and due to very limited space (small wooden shed no mains power) I have to make everything by hand so when you see the detail and finish on your tug its just amazing! Well done keep it up.
      Cheers,
           Peter. :-))

Todays checklist was.........Ladder and rack, Anchor, obscure red handles, recessed fuel cap thingies, front firebox and windscreen wipers, the anchor winch was also on that list but the one I made just didnt look right so I will do it over tomorrow, after that its time to connect a battery, trim servos, program esc's and build a battery tray and hopefully thats it :)

What an amazing amount of work, this final stretch looks like that of the last leg of a 25 mile marathon .............

Worse than that tim, I shut the workshop that night ready to finish it the next day but woke up with an awful saw throat that turned into hot sweats and uncontrollable shivering followed by headache and fatigue, doc thinks it's a strep throat infection but waiting to hear back.

Hi Phill...hope you are feeling better  %)...to answer your question......the jar states 96% garlic........  O0 ...

'Made in Australia from 'local and imported product [Garlic from China]'.......Derek

E260 Acetic acid Acetic acid (ethanoic acid) has been used for hundreds of years
 as a preservative (vinegar, French for "sour wine"). If during the fermentation of grapes or other fruits, oxygen is allowed into the container, then bacteria convert the ethanol present into ethanoic acid causing the wine to turn sour. Acetic acid may be synthetically produced using methanol carbonylation, acetaldehyde oxidation, or butane/naphtha oxidation. Pure acetic acid is termed "glacial", and is completely miscible with water. Typical products include fish fingers, butter, margarine, processed cheese, curry powder, cooking oil. Other names: ethanoic acid. Acetic acid is strongly corrosive and causes serious burns, as well as being a lachrymator

Phill...words escape me with this build  :-)) ...and hope the Garlic has helped  {-)

In the latest images of your Wattle we see the STDB side running box light

In another thread yesterday on MBM we were discussing navigation lights and when we GOOGLE this we see that each of the running lights must be visible in a 112.5 degree arc
ie., from full FWD along the axis of the vessel thru 90 degrees and finally to 112.5 degrees on each respective side

Would the placement shown here provide the full vision FWD?...or would this be obstructed by the framework structure of the lifeboat canister?

A second point raised by JerryC was the box's surfaces are to be flat matt black

Just observations as I am not the rivet counter  :o .. Derek

We seem to have lost a few post's in the crash, rather than re-hash I will just put up some pictures of the finished model, she was officially handed over at 8:00 this morning.
