    What an interesting childhood you must have had Nery's. I have always liked cargo ships, when we were small boys my dad used to take my brothers and I for a Sunday walk which nearly always ended at Leith docks which like every other docks in the 60s was really busy, I still remember the guards at the Dock gates and the trains running backwards and forwards.
    Also remember seeing a whole load of union Johnny's coming down a gangplank with their bikes to sell unions around Edinburgh πŸ‘

    I have decided to try a non static boat for the 1st time I am thinking about doing the tramp steamer from model boats magazine January 2019.
    In the magazine the motor is called a 545 motor but on the drawing is stated as a 540 LN motor,1st question ❔ are they the same?
    Next question the prop shaft measures 250mm on the drawing ,what should the shaft diameter be ?
    More questions to follow when I think of them ,thanks in advance Marky

    I just love small tugs ,what a brilliant restoration job for someone in the yard ,would make a brilliant apprentice project .thats what we did when we started our time the yard had an old tug which was shored and the apprentices put theory into practice you also got to do other trades ,I was a metalworker but got to do some shipwright work ,laying a piece of wooden deck ,caulking and tarring.Oh fond memories.
