Did some test towing of my mates barge recently and the tug has stacks of power! It will be interesting to see how she does with a larger tow...

Actually the owner of the barge wants to build an Oil rig now!! About 1m square (approx) and fairly tall once the derrick is inplace.

Did some painting last couple of days on the superstructure....lots of masking up then, painting, then waiting a day or so to do the next colour!! The decks are a nice green, funnels ended up being black. I decided they would make a nice contrast to the very yellow superstructure. Also painted up the ships RHIB and a Gemini inflatable bright orange and the life raft canisters white.

Got to do a bit of touching up where the Tamiya tape took some paint off the bridge roof!!
After I get back from the TF72 Annual Regatta I still need 2 make up a crane, Mast and do the railings...

Here are some pix...

Thanks Mate,
The Tiger yellow really grows on you! Once the mast, railings and cranes go on She should look alright. got to get some brass lettering for her name too...
I just got back from Wagga Wagga late last night. Had some fun running LB and Titan over there got some good pix of both running Amok....Well LB ran amok the tug just cruised about! admittedly at a slightly faster than scale speed when she's flat out. I will re size some pix shortly and post em!

Cheers Bruce

She looks really smart on the water Bruce. Well done

You know the Masters on the real vessels would take umbridge at the term tug. They would prefer Anchor Handling, Emergency Towing, or Re-Supply, Vessel .....

I am currently in Norway, just left Stavanger where there were some pretty impressive Re Supply vessels moored. No camera I'm afarid, so no good shots.

Thats funny, I've run into the same kinda thing on the US rivers, towboat operators won't even talk to you on the radio, if you call them tug...it has to be towboat, which I really do not understand, since they push, and do not tow.

G'day Mate,

Been working on the mast and main crane designs recently I finally had an idea for how I wanted it after a massive session of Searching net for mast ideas!! Followed by a big session drawing my ideas...

I had her in the water last week (First time since Nov..) for a brief run but I need a new main battery the second hand one I was using won't hold a charge now.

Was the Galatea featured in Model Boat mag awhile back name sounds familiar??

Cheers Bruce
