Yep out of my comfort zone Geo, but mouldings were offered to me as a gift and it seemed churlish to refuse!!! Especially as I had the motors on the shelf.

A little more progress made. Fendering added [ends still to be blanked off], ports and window frames added and cabin primed.

Very nice Pete, it has a real sleek and tough appearance. It looks like you have
a pair of "700s" running the show. I hope you are able to share some video
of your Pilot Boat in action. Thank you for a fine post and all.

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
