My New Tug Build, with your Help.
« on: May 22, 2015, 05:38:16 PM »

This is my new Tug Hull with a Superstructure I was given, I am thinking of re using it.
Now a few questions Tuggies, have I got the decks at the right height and then the Handrails/Gunwales?are added above.
What position should the wheel house be on the deck and the short length of 2x2 represents the possible Funnel position.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
What Tug would this wheel house come from?.
 
Regards,
 
Len.

It is usual to have the foredeck below the hull to make the bow area surrounded by steel.
It helps to keep the water off the foredeck.
