Hi Barry    the model is 54''X 20'' I think,  the weight finished and down to the waterline he told us is about 116lbs , a real backbreaker or a well built trolley.   It is not going to be a tug as such, but more a workboat type, cranes and things working on deck.  The model is well finished with a good layup of fibreglass, he is also changing the wheelhouse quite a lot,   I will ask him to put a build log on the forum and we can all see how he is getting on.

Looking forward to the build.

He could use the cranes to place jthe ballast.
