Nice! Will the D rubber go on top of the strakes or will you run it bare?

Thanks guys. I was planning on keeping the strake bare, but putting the D rubber on sounds like a good idea.

I went with the Gorilla CA to fasten the bulwark. Filled the hull with sacks of lead to keep the hull from wiggling around. Wrapped an angle block & chunk of ply with some plastic wrap, threw them on the corners, hit the parts with the CA and dropped them in place. Worked out great. My TTB is starting to take shape.

Thanks Harry.
Got some more stuff done. The door, the step on the motor cover, access hatch, and a forward bitt. Painted the deck, and got the pilot house & motor cover primed. The knees will get glued down once I get the hull and bulwarks painted. Have some tricky masking to do next.

Pat,

I don't know how I missed this build. I just read the whole build log. It is really nice looking. I was thinking about building a springer some day for a recovery boat. You sure know how to detail a boat. How big is this tug compared to a springer?

It is 12'' long x 5.5'' wide, and only weighs about 3.5+ lbs., ready to run. A Springer is 18'' long x 8'' wide, and weighs about 7.5+ lbs. They both use a 1.5'' dia. prop. Hope this helps. Charlie

The cradle itself is a nice work of art. Careful veneer work or? The retainers along the edges are sweet looking!
