Excellent and thank you Cor.

I, for years, have subscribed to "Popular Mechanics" and "Popular Science" magazines. As I have cracked open the cover page of each new issue over the decades, my only hope was that I could feast my attention upon a, for example, sleek new ship design or one of their picture articles to build that was perfectly what I was interested in.

Only here on the "Model Tug Forum" are found the most beautiful illustrations serving my personal burning desire to create a strong and handsome tugboat. . .thank you for the inspiration and many new ideas Cor.

And thank you Model Tug Forum for the very best,
Michael in Anacortes, Washington
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

One step further with the barge.

This stuff sat by the tug, this is no quality.
the nozzles are oval, and the propellers are ridiculously small.

So it's time for new nozzles.
