These are photos for the model murray paddle boat that I plan to finish.

The wheel is marked out and drilled to remove the unwanted material.
The wheel placed in a vice and the removal of metal is with a chisel.

Two of the segments have been removed.ten to go.

All the segments removed.

The wheel finished off only three more to go.

Hero in Sydney

Off Fort denison in Sydney harbour. Here the mast has been moved behind the wheelhouse as it was hitting the bigger ships when it ran under there rear Quater. Fenwick's named there tugs Hero Heroine  There flag was green and yellow with a white square in the centre with a capital "F" The last shipper was Jimmy Robinson who saw the model and was pretty chuffed.

Earlier days in sydney note the green colour scheme.

These images were given on loan to Wollongong city library by myself.
