Here are the latest pictures of the Hendon, the hull and deck is now glossed, and the tow hook table and hook are fitted along with the winch and tow bow,

Very super George. I like a bigger tug model. Yours has the most attractive
workmanship and portrays a strong tug spirit. Thank you for sharing.
