Army Tug St Type


Hello guys!
First of all i wish to say thank you to "der kapitan" for his help.Without him i will probably never get to start the build of this beautiful tug.
Now, after reading "toesup" posts about the Angels Gate build i've decided to make an army tug too.I've also bought the book "Ordeal of Convoy NY 119"(great book)so my build have started...
With your accept i will post some pictures.
Best regards
George

Angles Gate underway


I had thought Angels Gate was just a static museum ship, but one day on our boat last month I was on deck and quickly grabbed my camera.

Steve, great pics! You really should put an album together online somewhere of all the cool photos you have taken in the harbor.
