'Puffin' took this great photo of a new ASD tug at the Foss Cup event 8)
Looks to be a model of one of the new 'Dolphin' Class tugs that Foss Maritime is building.

The model in the background is a 'Atlantic' RTR tug.

Hi Mike,  What a great little tug - nice to see someone making a real tug from a model for a change !

Ray,  'looks like fun' - getting a little worried about you,  don't think I'll be applying for his job.

Great pictures of both.


Cheers - Ken

Do you mean the model winch, or the real one?



P.S.
I'm going to start a thread in 'Modern Tugs' titled 'Robert Allen Tugs'
See y'all there!
