Crowley #21 Tug -- HAMMS Plans

Here's a set sure to get Tim B. excited- Crowley #21, a 50 foot gasoline powered tug from 1912. I have the full HAMMS set for #21, and the outboard profile for the next set, Crowley #22... which appears to be same but for a few extra feet aft.

All of the same ilk as Bob Herrera's "Panama":

The one on blocks was pulled out of the mud, pre-turn of the century I think, I will try to find the article again.

I always though what an amazing stern shape, and what a fine challenge it would be to plank a model of it ...

Is this one available in .pdf's? There was a member of the San Diego Ship Modelers' Guild who built an old gasoline-powered Crowley in a large scale so he could get in a lot of detailing. It was a beautiful model that made it on my "someday list."

For a picture and history take a look at a history of Crowley: Two Men at the Helm
PDF at
page 63 on the PDF [62 in the book enumeration] : discussion and picture!
Have to get Pat or Kay to scan and distribute.
Discussed these with Kay at one time, neat little vessel.

Good luck to all, it's a nice addition to any fleet.
