VB 30 by Mariner85 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
Just finished adding a crews quarters and pump engine house to the stern of my barge, then added the necessary bitts for stern pushing.

Checking for size comparison and scale! The barge is 50 inches long by 12 inches beam, will draw 2 inches light and 6 inches loaded. I plan on making it an oil tank barge with a swiveling boom and two deck houses aft for the pump engine and housing for crew.

Scratch building a barge for my tugboat Miss Doris to push. May deck it over to become a tank barge I used to push on the Delaware River. If i do deck it over, I'll hinge the deck to make use of the space for my RC gear.

Beautiful craft. Like the detail!

Miss Doris by Mariner85 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
The name is derived from my mothers name and that of a similar tug I captained for 12 years, on the Delaware River and Chesapeke Bay.

The model is the Dumas El Pedro 30 inches length, 12 inch beam, drawing 4 I inches, which should change with more ballast. My mates suggest a barge is necessary so I am attempting a scratch build with leftover ply from other projects. Comments welcome!
