very big tug refurbish started
« on: September 01, 2013, 04:22:22 PM »

i got hold off this big tug as it turned out its from a mayhem member and a very helpful one at that  :-)) any it did have a bow thruster in but i have removed it as i didnt think a steam tug would have had one fitted its 44inch long and about a foot wide heres some pictures i took when i got home and the strip down the fourth one show the hull filled after the bow thruster was removed i have been looking on the net for anything like her but not found it yet so if anyones got any info it would be a great help

I see that you've opted for U.S. registry. If you add a U.S. flag, you might want to look at the year you are representing - and the number of start in the U.S. flag at that time.
 
Just a bit of fun (and painless) research in our hobby!
