Towing Day - Marigny Normandy
« on: August 13, 2017, 07:33:20 »
Hello

Two or three times a year we are a dozen French modelers and tug lovers to get together for what we call a Towing Day (in fact two days each time)

This summer it was at Marigny in Normandy.

Some pictures here.

Great group of models - the small boom boat - what is the origin of that one?
Some large unique ones as well.
Thanks for posting.

Hello Mike

The origin of this boom boat is just plasticard scratch built following a lot of internet pictures.

Wadone, the modeller, is from Cherbourg and as many people were interrested, he gave his complete drawing/plans and also references for the motor, ESC ...  I suppose that next year with the Towing Day it will be alf dozen of similar boom boats

here a post (in French) about the building of this boom boat

By the way, someone knows what is for the black can on the roof ?

Might be oil spill kits - I took these a year or so ago when I was wandering the docks in Nanaimo. Probably have a better one showing the wording.
