mini tug boats

mini tug part three

All the screws were taken out and replaced with Australian red cedar dowels ,the windows glued in with silicon, the use of pva glue for the dowels as immersion into water is unlikely.This took about three days to complete...cheers Stewart

mini tug boat part two

Measuring up and getting it right and gluing the top pieces on.Anyone can do this with old scraps and an old boat maybe an alloy boat give it a go.cheers Stewart

mini tug boat part one

I started building this about two months ago I picked the hull up for twenty dollars with a deck that wouldn't fit so the deck was turned into a garden bed .I screwed the deck down with bronze screws and when it was finished it rained and the bronze screws rusted and all had to be removed and plugged with dowel there was a thousand of them the morel of this story is buy bronze screws not steel ones
