MY MUCKY TUG.
« on: June 03, 2016, 09:01:41 PM »

Big thanks to Jim and Neil for sorting out Mike's last tug.


I of course, had to start to make it mine.  :embarrassed:  The painted surface made a superb base for a painted, re-painted boat and just lent itself to me starting to weathering it.


I am hoping Jim and, if Mike ever does see it...he will approve  {:-{























Still some more to do but you get the idea...a rusty, mucky sea plodder. {-)


Si:)

I love to see a workboat actually look like its had a hard life. You are going to do something with the pristine anchor chain and tow rope?
