All will be revealed in the fullness of time . . .

Several days have past and I have returned to the tug boat.

The wiring below decks is completed.



The right hand switch allows me to toggle between shipboard power and shore power.  The next three switches are the masthead lights, the search light and the bridge lights.

The shore power is usually plugged into the quarter deck module, but I can also plug it directly into the distribution panel for testing purposes (as in this case).

The bridge deck is on test, sitting in the bows of the boat.

The black cylinder is an .mp3 player which has a 1 1/2 hour recording of a diesel engine running.  I have set the volume low enough to create the ambience of a working tug boat.  I hope. 

The next section is the cabin superstructure.  Lots of hours of work, but I'm getting there.

My lobster pots have arrived from the UK, so I have been doing a bit of work around the stone shed.

Amazing, Max. So realistic.

I didn't know you could get lobster pots here in the UK. Can you tell me from where please ?


Allan.

Thanks Max.

I know Andy, he's an old mate of mine so he should have told me about lobster pots !

Wonderful detail Max. You should be a most happy bunny with the way Port Elderley is turning out after so much research and hard work.

Thank you,

Bill

Hi Allan

You might want to catch up with him.  I understand that he has been unwell/in hospital recently.

Thanks, Bill.

It's a great hobby.

I need three deck winches for the tug boat.  I managed to find a couple of kits for the trawl winch and the cargo winch.  They needed a bit of extra bashing, but I think that they have come out OK.



The cable is 10 lb nylon coated, stainless steel fishing trace.

A bit of weathering and I think that they will be OK.

The anchor winch will have to be scratch built.

The anchor winch is done.  I've lined it up with the other two.



I think that I'll get away with it.

Painted another coat of white on the superstructure.  (Still to cut the grey in).

And made a gangway.

Don't know how you do it Max, it's all so amazing.  Glad you posted the Duncan models link, didn't know about that and there's some good stuff.
