Gotta find about 30 tires, 22 go on Beamsville alone.
No leaks, all seams are fibreglassed and sealed before painting.
Marcel and I talked earlier this week, he explained how the barge is secured to the tug when working and depending upon the situation from which end it is towed. Some times water will wash over the deck. It is used mostly for inner harbour work, though it is being used for an off coast tow in January.
I will be interested to see how the model reacts when towing the barge. Currently, when not towing there is a fair bit of rolling which Marcel says is normal as the tug has no keel exposed.
