Hi Barry, looks really nice with just the right amount of weathering... Did you weather the fenders as well or is it just a trick of the light?

As for the next project how about a paddle tug (I know of a really good GRP hull!!! :D :D :D :D :D )

Mark...

Mark,

Oh yes the fenders were weathered. Dropped in a cup of tea, followed by treatment with some weathering powders and finally a small amount of 'green slime' to the bottom ends...

Thanks..... Not sure where I would put something that size!!! :-\ :-\ :-\

In your neighbor's pool silly....where else.
You could put a couple of bottles of fine wine, a few glasses, and some snacks on the barge....and be a real pool-side hit!!
