Thompson Trawler

I like this build because the weathering job on it makes it
look like the real thing. Also the great details.
Some of the pictures are without the cabin on.

The pushboat intrigues me. I`m guessing it`s scratch built or does someone make it in kit form?

That pushboat was scratched built hull and superstructure.
This one below has a fiberglass hull and the superstructure
was scratched built. I will try to get some detail pictures of
this one because it belongs in a museum. Inside the pilot house is a must see !!

Shark Hunter

This is my fishing Boat and it was the first boat i ever built.
The hull was scratched built is 38" long with a 12" beam .
There is a robbe 5:1 geared motor that runs off a 12v 3.2 ah battery.
The first 2 pictures show the boat being fiberglassed.
This boat got me to join the club and to my surprise it won
2nd place a number of times at different shows.
I put as many details in it to make the boat stand out.

This is the Jersey City tug from Dumas.
The hull was glued together from 2 sections.
