Fantastic George. That's a one man museum in waiting. I'd pay to see that.
Does the public ever get to see them?

George is one of  the most profilic builders of fine tugs. They are built with a great deal of knowledge and built strong and durable. The collection shown is a really great collection of his work,  i have seen very many of them in action. Great Models of real tugs no longer with us recreated by George.
 :) Just Great !

That collection deserves a New Year medal for maritime history.

Well done Sir.

Happy New Year to all.

A tremendous "WOW" George. If there were ever a room that oozed pure
tugboat spirit, I am looking at it. I am honored to see your "One Man's
Collection of Model Tugs". Looking at them all closely, they all have your
particular rich tug touch.

Thank you George for sharing your years of tugboat effort with us,
Michael
