Unknown Tug
« on: September 02, 2013, 10:12:12 PM »

Does anyone know the name of the 5-6 foot tugboat model based on a 1920's? english tug/ mailship? It is probably one of the largest model tug hull sold in the US. The real one was sold to ?Canada? and did salvage work for many years.  Single funnel,
 
There is one guy making the hulls in the US and they are very nice. I saw a pic once but have not been able to find it again. Black hull, fiberglass....
 
Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Foundation Franklin was ex Frisky if I remember rightly. The book Gray Seas Under was a really enjoyable read too. She did salvagecrescue work out of Halifax.
