Great looking tugboat Doug. I am finishing up a static east coast dragger
and will post pics for a build log soon. Would be interested in any photos you have of your dragger.

Look forward to the pics. Mine too is aft house set up with two gallows frames on Stb'd side.
About 98% sratch built as I found a toy sailboat hull at a yard sale. I could see the possibility of a dragger hull by modifying the sheer line and keel. Hull is a bit too narrow so had to make some scale compromises to get a proportional house and deck gear.

I have purchased 2 CDs from these people over the past couple of years and they are reliable. They also gave instructions on how to print out the drawings in tiles if you do not have access to a printing service.

Great model of the dragger. The detailing and weathering are first rate. Good job. I did work from Bill Northrup plans. One of the previous threads noted that Bill has passed away so I do not know if the plans are still available.




. Usually I don't put on a lot small details because they get broken or lost to and from the lake. Most damage happens in the car. I really like your work. The Debra Ann is in fact Tara Dawn. Hope this answers your question Tim.

I Have the plans for the tug....could have them copied, but would not want to upset anybody...however, if Anita doesn't have them...maybe I should have them copied and send them to her....

And, I always wanted to do a double size version of it, and now I see there is a laser cut kit for it....just a bit pricey!!
