A very fine pusher tug CAJ. Looks like plenty of power and sperior detail. The tinted windows are very nice. Always happy to see a new owner's first trials. . .thank you for sharing, Michael in Anacortes.

My Grandfather was from Wales and it's good to see that the tug spirit is still doing fine there.
Yet another case of why men and women go down to the sea in ships. . .A pleasure to be here and smell the salt air. Thank you Tugboat Forum. . .Michael in Anacortes, Washington www.twotugboats.com

Got to agree with Michael. She is a beauty. Any chance of seeing some detail shots?  ^-^ ^-^

   Hi Caj.
   Did you get the barge with it? If so you will find it will sail a lot better with
   the barge on, and be more stable.

Hi John, have the barge too - wanted a few trials post radio set up. Handy little boat - will gain JP Knight colours in time.

Cheers
Chris
