This is my second attempt at building a boat, and the first that I fibreglassed and built for RC. I stumbled along the learning curve especially around the hull construction and waterproofing. In spite of all the sanding, filling and painting, the boat still shows off the various bumps and ridges. So I say to myself, "Hey, this is a working tugboat and after long and hard service it's bound to show its wear and tear with pride". Despite this, I am happy with the result. I did a lot of customizing. I added a number of features to the wheelhouse, installed davits (the kit doesn't have any). The kit also had no way of entry below deck so I added a companionway. I also renamed it the Martha May, after my bride of 32 years.
