Hello to you,
    My tugs are having a rest and a few tweaks as reqd. The main project (shortened Eldergarth) is work in progress i.e. It's too damp and cold to be in the shed. I'll keep you posted!
      A happy,healthy and hopefully wealthy new year to you all.
                Cheers, Pete.

I like the hopper barge,  :-))   I have thought of doing a dump barge, but we felt we would need
a pan on the bottom of the pond to try to collect the "debris" for recycling for the next contestant..

 I have created a lot of competition events for tugs. Some modeled after competitions in Belgium, water tank filling, and then the shearleg crane and windmill pylon. Others modeled after actual local incidents, container spill, and barge grounding.

Well I sold my modified Mr. Darby a few years ago, now building a master for molding this year. Photo below shows the style of tug that it will be. I was fortune enough to be able to get the drawings from the company when I was stationed in San Diego, Ca. The model will be in 1/48 scale.

For various reasons, my fleet have been laid up for a year or so. :(


Heighton is due to be cleaned up and presented to my grandson. Denton is also due for a spruce up and put back on the water in the Spring. Tarring is sadly looking a bit worse for wear. Steering gear has come loose at the rudder post and she was built with no access to it. :( Serious cutting or deck removal probably required. Meeching had her props and rudders removed, her previous owner never greased them and she leaked badly. Just haven't got around to putting them back in - a two person job, one to push the propshafts back in and one to carefully hold the lock nut in place until person #1 can put a couple of turns on it - and I've lost the photos of how the rudder gear was assembled. I may have to ask for some guidance when I put it all back together. I have, however filled in the huge holes around the anchors that the builder left wide open. Needless to say that they also let water in once a bow wave was achieved. Anyone near Newhaven in Sussex? Any help would be appreciated.


But I'm determined to get one or two back on the lake this year. Meeching first, then Denton, probably.
