    Excellent build.

    The green Tank, on the Starboard side of the Stack, what is it for?

    I believe there are different views on what water it may contain, but from Your perspective, what was the use of this Tank for?

    Thank You.

    A question on Horsepower; (as I have similar rating on my old Tug);

    re; "The original tug was built in 1956 engine was 56 nominal horse power ( 1000 indicated horse power )"

    What is the correlation between Nominal Horsepower and Indicated Horsepower?

    Thank You.

    ๐Ÿ“ Styrene Allergy?
    4 years ago by Tug Hercules ( Leading Seaman)
    Flag
    Not necessarily allergic to Styrene, but many are allergic to CA Glue.

    Once a CA Glue sensitivity develops, it is difficult to overcome.

    Try masks; try good ventilation.

    Even when cutting Styrene, ensure You have good ventilation.

    Great Build; Tug Brooklyn has always been my favourite.

    For the brass Portholes/Port Lights that You used on the Deck Cabin; where they the ones supplied by Dumas, or bought elsewhere? (They look good.)

    That is what is strange; I have done that and the settings are set to "Weekly" updates on posts; yet I get numerous every day.

    Not sure what has changed??

    I used to get Notifications of Updates to this Site on a Weekly basis; for some reason in the last two weeks I get several Update Notices daily.

    I have checked the Notifications frequency in my Profile and nothing changed.

    Why is the Site sending out Update Notices for every posting?

    How do I revert back to Weekly Notice Updates?

    I enjoy Model Boats, however I get far toooooooooooo much e-Mail traffic .

    Any insights, are appreciated.
