This tugboat has an "Ice Breaker" bow which lends to it being very sensitive to being "Top Heavy". In my zest to make my superstructures stronger, I made them too heavy. In fact, the "Kathy Sue" will never sail because of too heavy of a superstructure. Watch the weight of everything above the water line. . .everything. 12/31/16 and still build this page. . .

Pictured above is a pretty good look at the bow plates and stern plates installed. The access cowling is in place which keeps the water out once the superstructure is fitted in place. . .fitting will around the cowling. Below is the stern deck's progress after about a month of effort, in my spare time. . .
