LAST CHANCE TO GET ONE INTERESTED
« on: November 05, 2015, 09:02:46 »
I have just made this up to try to get my No3 Grandson interested in model boats,I have sadly failed with the first two so this will be my last chance at it.
It is a weekender kit from Artesia Latima fitted with radio and steering,well you never know it may work.

A fine little tug for your grandson to get a feel of and with it having a name
like "Ben Hammy", I'm sure you will be a winner this time.

I used reverse psychology with my 12 years old grandson and it worked perfectly.
So that he didn't have to ask if he could drive my tug, I asked him if he would learn
to pilot it so that I could take pictures of it plying the waters.

He feels that he is a needed part the tugs operation, he loves being the tug's
captain, I'm the owner, and I have quality grandson tugboat time.

Let us know how it goes George. Again, naming it the "Ben Hammy" was
a very smart move. A very catchy tugboat name.
