A new tug!

by: Dave Irving

Our new tug Margaret is looking happier 😊. She now has an SVCC purple cabin, and red decks.  Many thanks to the volunteers who laboured over the last couple of weeks to achieve this new look!  Inside the cabin, the woodwork has been rubbed down and is ready for a coat (or two) of Sadolin to protect it and make it look more cared for.
There's still more to do, of course – we want to add an extra coat to both cabin and deck, and to highlight some deck fittings in white before we can say she's finished. There is also still a fair list of other jobs to do including installation of the new rudder bearing, an engine service and getting the hull grit-blasted and 2-pack blacked.

More pictures to follow, as we progress.
