Workboats

A new river tug from bob Fowler

This model started out destined to be a Russian/Japanese type MTB, but spotted by Darran Newman at the CADMA show in 2016 he had other ideas. So with the help of fellow builder Pete Shipley it was transformed into something different.

Another new scratch build from me, Daz

This one is based on the Humber Workboat Rebecca M which when not working can be found moored at goole. The model has an unusual drive system, using two car wiper motors for the twin drives on 24v, and to give it that extra bit of manoverabillity there are two angled drives at the bow as side thrusters. with the crane on deck i think it is coming along nicely.

 

One of Darran Newmans extra long models, Barge H ploughing its way across the pond.

Harold Sharp's model of the pilot boat Britannia, built from the Mountfleet kit by Gordon Coles

Harold demonstrates what happens when Bob Lomas's yacht attempts to cut across in front of his pilot boat, while Darran Newmans pusher tug bustles along to sort things out.

Geoge Morris's Springer tug pushes a couple of Tom Puddings across the pond on its maiden voyage in June 2012

Wolfgang Patsch's model of a typical coaster on which he used to sail, when he first visited Goole many years ago.  North Star is a very comprehensive conversion of a Southampton tug.

Tony Burton's latest model of the Trinity House Vessel Pathfinder as originally built in the 1950's

Tony Burton's original model of Pathfinder, built around 1990 and modified to represent the ship as sold to Greece in the late 80's

Colin Howells model of the coaster Ballyoran on its maiden voyage in January 2012

I think this model of a Clyde Puffer, Highlander belongs to Gordon Coles (but I will check and correct if required)

Another coaster, this time one of Paddy Rew's fleet.

Bob Mason Pitt's workboat Emmet, scratch built on a Cervia tug hull

Bob Lomas's pilot boat Helen Marie scratch built on a Models by Design hull

Graham Buckton's Sheffield sized Humber keel won best boat in show at the 2010 CADMA model boat exhibition

Clive Acasters scratch built model of T W Prickett.  The full size vessel is usually moored in the marina in Goole and has served as a fishing boat and Humber pilot boat.

Geoff Hudson's very neat and tidy model of a Scottish Puffer, Northlight.

I think this was Darran Newman's first attempt at a Ship Docking Module

And this was I think Darran's  second version of an SDM, bigger, better, more powerful and a very smart looking ship
