Hello Bill,

Your model sounds quite complete. I am just learning about complete kits and
finding that you indeed have spent quite a bit on your find. It sounds like it is
very complete and has a good set of plans and instructions. I would like to see
pictures of your building progress and all. Pictures convey the biggest amount
of information which we all seek.

I hope the very best for your tugboat build and welcome aboard Bill,
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
