Hello, hello. What have we here, then?
« on: September 28, 2014, 11:29:00 AM »

I was recently (OK, about 30 years ago {-)) given a couple of fibreglass hulls and more recently found a wooden one in a friend's basement. (Someone has put a lot of work into this one). They are all about 30" long.

The grey one looks to me like it might be a Huntsman (from what I have seen in the refurbishment thread). I'm guessing that the blue one is a lifeboat - from the colour as much as anything!

Anyone care to hazard a guess as to what these hulls are?

The wooden one looks like a tug hull, very similar to a few of the Thames River tugs, but also similar to some of the larger harbour tugs.
The blue one looks like a lifeboat but I am saying that because of the prop tunnels.
The bottom one is a mystery to me as I have never built a hull like that one.

Ooh, Tug. Never thought of that. I was thinking 'trawler' but I reckon you're on the right track. One day all of these will get turned into something. One day.........................

I know that one day thing, I just need to stop buying plans.
