A new tug!

by: Dave Irving

More progress was made this week, preparing the cabin exterior by rubbing down the multitude of rust spots and scratches showing through the paint, removing the old name and phone number on the cabin sides.  A first coat of red oxide primer was applied then left to harden over the weekend.  She’s looking a lot better than when she arrived!

The paint for the next stages has arrived, and the nameplates are on order.  We’re also thankful to J E Clarke Motor factors, who are kindly supporting our purchase of a new battery and filters for the engine.  http://www.jeclarke.co.uk/
