Correct me if I'm wrong but I think Don built two - one which won the awards in the UK - one lives in Vancouver, the other in the Maritime Museum in Victoria.

I have one of the hulls that if I had the time would like to turn into a model.

Don did make 2 of them the big winner tug is in Victoria, the parts boat is in Vancouver.
They are like night and day when you can see both of them.
Victoria's is a world a part in scale . I am still trying to get there.

Nice looking Saint Class tug there!
We stayed in Vancouver a few years back when our daughter was living there. Loved it! Went on a tour of Vancouver island and visited a museum there (I think). Some fine models there.
Lovely place. Sadly she's come back to NZ to continue her studies. I met up with some fine folk there.
Here are two of the models I photographed. An RN Flower Class Corvette (they built a few in Canada) and a local launch named Greta.
Both lovely models.
