    ๐Ÿ“ On Board the Loganville today
    2 days ago by Ron ( Lieutenant Commander)
    Flag
    View All
    My wife, Catharine and I, were invited by the owner of the Loganville to come down to Port Dover, Ontario, on the north shores of Lake Erie. We drove 500km round trip today to experience walking the decks above and below. We enjoyed photographing the vessel by ourselves. The owner, Pete Spencer, of Tiller Marine, left us pretty much on our own to photograph, measure and explore the vessel.

    Pete has a No Visitors sign posted on the property. Best you contact him first before you coming knocking on his shop door. ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ˜‰

    ๐Ÿ“ My Scroll saw is the workhorse for cutting the ribs
    4 days ago by Ron ( Lieutenant Commander)

    View All
    Just starting to see how the design is starting to shape up. The keel is sturdy quarter-saw oak. The ribs are lightly tacked in place with a drop of CA, easily removed. A couple ribs are to be altered and the Stuffing box secured before the ribs are glued up.

    Hi Ron,
    Reading your notes about the boats lack of keel, could this cause stability problems especially with the boat being 30in long, and a beam of 7.5in.
    I assume it will be used as a radio controlled model.
    Are you going to put in a metal keel to keep Centre of gravity low?

    Regards Roy

    This tug is about 3 hours from me. In Port Dover, Lake Erie, Ontario, Canada. I hope to get down there to see it and take some measurements.

    Note the bow in the photo; the tug is used to break ice in the river where Tiller Marine is located. This is the Listerville.

    Yes I looked at this Army Tug, it is different from the Canadian Tugboat. I spoke with the owner of the Listerville, this morning. He said the tug has the ability to go aground and not get stuck being that there is no keel to speak of, though this also causes it to "Rock n' Roll" he said.

    Th army tug variation is different around the wheelhouse and deck structures.

    ๐Ÿ“ Miss Jenna located in Mahone Bay, N.S
    14 days ago by Ron ( Lieutenant Commander)

    View All
    Mike Kelly owns the Miss Jenna, a Russel Brothers Ville Class tugboat built for use by the RCN for duty on the East and West coasts of Canada. It has an approximate LOA of 40', beam 10' and interestingly virtually no keel. The drawings found, show a visible keel beginning about in the middle. A 4 1/2" width and about 1 3/4" depth, which becomes increasingly more moving aft.

    http://www.russelbrothers.ca/xlisterville.html

    Bill Froelich, Houston, Texas, built a fine 40" 1"=1' scale model seen here.

    Bill and I have been in contact and have shared various ideas.
