Thank's guys!

A little progress update. I have made the fire-fighting monitors and painted the mast. It was alot of work at the lathe to make the monitors moveable in all directions.

I have done a few tests with it on the water just to see how much lead it needs and it is very maneouvrable. When the korts are turned right or left and one motor runs forward and the other backwards it turns around it's own axis.

Fantastic build, as with all your other tugs. All the little details like handwheels and hatch hinges really show how devoted you are to accuracy. Great job!
