It's all that pesky prep that takes so long, then only moments to paint ( or make a mess ) ( )

Mooring Tug


The more research that's done on this type of boat, the more examples are found ~

This orange color is much more common than thought at first, these examples are from harbor's all over Europe ( not just Hamburg ) ...

Leak test passed, enough weight was put in to bring the hull down nearly to the ports.

The brass bolts and nuts that surround the mooring eyes were put in and well as the washport guards.

Zinc mounting bases were made up and glued on the hull and rudder.

The area where the cage and ring mount got a first coat of primer before the rest of the hull to ensure complete coverage in all the hard to get to places.

Still waiting on a backorder of paint to make a choice on shade of orange final coat.
It is looking really good Tim! Lots of details, I love it!
