This was the first Tug my late father in law served on before he supervised the build of the Recruit for Cory in Thorne, N.Yorks. Looking at the photo and seeing this created in Model form makes me so proud. He would have been so pleased at what you have created. Well done x

Hi Angela,

I'm so glad you like the model, she took 18 months on and off, the drawings available are so good for the detail it makes the build most enjoyable trying to re-create the bits and bobs

If you look in my album "Ray's Boats" you will see the whole build process for the cutting of the bulkheads to the tug on the water.

Kind Regards Ray

Nice model, Ray

Where did the unusual name come from?

Hi Bob,

Its good to hear from you again Cullamix was an APC Tug Associated Portland Cement based on the Thames, I'm fairly sure she was named after one of their products. One of there better known products is Sandtex an external masonry paint, apparently they tested the products on the tugs, so she was many different colours over the years.

Regards Ray

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
