Hello and thank you for adding me to your forum/group. I live in Michigan and have had interest in tugs for along time. I have built several tugs over the years, but currently only have the "original" tug that started it all for me. I have posted more about this tug and its current condition in another section of this forum, I'm afraid I have done this backwards, but I'm here now.
So I'm hoping to learn more about tug in general and their many operational components. I'm also interested in any types of competition for the tugs, and where they maybe located. I have traveled around the country before going to boating events and shows, so I don't mind doing that, just limited by my new health concerns, but it will be better.
I've read through several of the threads with interest and will try to read through them all as I have time to do that. There are many talented folks here and I'm looking to learn form you all.

Thank you again for adding me I hope to be able to contribute to the group,

Jim

Hi Jim

Welcome to the forum,
I enjoy reading through the threads from other builds, lots of interesting information  and great ideas. And also agree with your comment about the talented members on here. I should update a couple of my builds.

Well Tassie48 did you take millions of photos of all the details on all those ships on which you worked in order to build super models?
