Similar boats, both designed by Hankinson, the Titan is slightly larger at 20′ while the Goliath is 18’6".
With a 1941 built tugboat, they offer cruises in the Pacific Northwest.
Cruise the Inside Passage of B.C. and experience some of the most exotic scenery in the world and enjoy British Columbia salmon and halibut fishing that is second to none.
Our 1941 heritage wooden Tugboat, the MV Parry is lovingly maintained and beautifully appointed with comfortable two berth cabins, fireside lounge, spotless bathrooms and showers plus a busy galley serving unbelievable food and desserts. Creature comforts are provided with bathrobes, extra pillows, hairdryers and a complimentary selection of wines from around the world.
I know its been a dream of mine over and over again. After working on my own build, I can only imagine how much work it would be, but just think of it!
Mad Marinerâ„¢ magazine has a good article today by Alan R. Hugenot who has been personally involved in restoring a 100′ WWII tug.
She can go from 13 knots forward to 13 knots in reverse in 15 seconds.
Impressive boat. Don’t think it’s really the most powerful, but definitely big and modern. Also of interest to me is that Savannah isn’t that far from my place here, and you don’t hear about it being a major port that often (even though it is).
My wife is a huge fan of jigsaw puzzles and enjoys working them online at a handful of web sites. Her "puzzle of the day" was especially fitting today, and the site (http://www.jigzone.com allows embedding puzzles, so here you go.
Some time back we had a link to KB’s web page detailing how he was building a Glen-L designed Tubby Tug for his daughter. We are happy to announce that it has been presented to the lucky (and thrilled!) recepient, and initial on-the-water tests performed.
Great looking boat!
You can find some more pictures at his page.
Mad Marinerâ„¢ had a recent article on Trailer Cruising featuring an Alaskan Trader tug named Popeye. This is a neat little 24′ tug style craft that the owners use to cruise during the summers. Two "related articles" or sidebars cover Trailerable Boats and Rough Weather and The ‘How To’ of Trailer Cruising.
A trial subscription to the site is available which gives you full access to try it out, or you can purchase a yearly subscription for a modest fee.
For full disclosure, I write some paid articles for Mad Marinerâ„¢.
KB’s recent comment about his Lil Woody leads us to his new project, a Glen-L designed Tubby Tug for his daughter. These are cute little boats that I looked at in the past… I think it would be a great "father/child" project for those wanting something a little smaller than the project I bit off 🙂
KB has a nicely detailed set of web sites, and the pictures and commentary are great learning tools. I appreciated his opinions of epoxy thickening… that’s a subject that I haven’t found enough information on yet 🙂
A good rule of thumbs when mixing epoxy and silica is that if you wonder if it is thick enough – it isn’t. It will run and sag if not thick enough.
One website said to mix the epoxy and silica to a consistency of peanut butter. BUT, is that warm peanut butter or peanut butter that you just pulled out of the fridge? Is it the consistency of Skippy or Peter Pan? – October 4, 2007
KB’s planning for electric drive, so he’s fitting in here more and more.
Thanks, KB for your post and great web site! By the way, I’m well aware of those little one’s holding you to your promise to build a boat…. been there and doing that 🙂
