I am trying to find a kit that would allow me to build a tug similat to what I remember crossing the Hudson River, in the 40''s and 50''s, pushing the railroad barges, from the New York Central and/or thePennsy!
Any leads?

Sounds like Jersey City which is a Dumas Kit. These tugs if I recall were built with a high bridge/wheelhouse to see over the rail barges.

hi guys.

Does anyone out there remember the "Yorkshireman" which was a pleasure boat operating in Bridlingyon. It was a tug Built by Earles of Humberside I think a flat bottomed tug sadly towed to Brussels where she was broken up.

I am trying to find either a kit for her or plan NOT to be confused by the model offered by Model Slipway.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
