Thanks Ed !

A little while ago one of the transfers for the Tug I.D. was put on, they are just like the set up Callie uses, just rub 'em on and peel off the face.

I am sure this manufacturer jobbed these transfers out, but he used a Very high quality shop.

Glad to be back Tim. Yes the weather is drying out this week. Houston folks have FEMA in the area today. They flew in last night and set up their stuff.

Update ~

An update ~

The cage that protects the cab from falling heavy wet ropes ( and anchors, as we have seen on utube ) is coming along, thanks to RCG member Blutoh !

Blutoh's friend made the parts from machined aluminum tubing instead of brass rod.

The parts are notched and have inner pieces of rod that fit into holes carefully drilled in the mating tube.

Very little adjustment was made for it all to go together.

It's all held together with Loctite epoxy, like metal once set.

Here be the reason to watch out for falling anchors:
