Tugmad doesn't quite cover it!  :o

I've seen some of you handiwork at the doncaster show, evenmore impressive in real life!

They are really nice models, must have taken you a long time to build up that fleet. Where the heck do you keep them all?

Hy George
Nice to see you bringing your tugs to the Mayhem Site, as I have said before on the Model Tug site I have always been very impressed by your builds,  they are excellent.

HI PETERM      I did build a paddle tug once many years ago  and sad to say it was my one disaster, I put in the water and it turned turtle and sank.  :'( :embarrassed:

Hi Tugmad.

I wonder how you've ever found time to work with such a prolific display of models. Whereabouts do you operate, just in case I ever come your way.  It would be nice to see a line-up.

They all look pretty good too...... O0 O0

 8) Hi Kiteman1  unfortunately most of them are spread around the country, we Sail at Bluewater in kent where there are still
 quite a few owned by club members.

I could not keep that lot I would need a Barn.

I just love making them along with my other hobby 2 allotments  must be mad :D

all the best George.  8)

This is the latest build. :D :)

The Racia   Built in 1893 as the Oceaan  purchased by Wm Watkins and re named Racia.
She was sold on again in1920  to Italian owners and after several other owners was converted to a tanker,
finally broken up in 1983.

It is plank on frame using lime planking and is 581/2 inches long.
