Cool OLD tug

Allegedly, this beauty was built as a USCG work boat in 1928 and has been professionally restored.

Yeah, she's a beauty isn't she?
and a nice set of 'rolling chocks' al la 1928,
and some still can't accept they are functional in 2019

Plywood sections are cut out like bulkheads and attached to a strongback as in typical wood boat construction. Then the planking is laid on the cross sections that give the hull it’s shape. Next the outside of the hull is fiberglassed in the typical way. Then the whole structure is stiffened to stay aligned while being inverted and re-aligned. Right-side-up and again aligned the formers (like bulkheads) are removed. Then the inside of the hull is fiberglassed. The resulting hull is finished partly like a FG boat and partly like a wood boat.

So typical and common strip plank composite construction.

I've always preferred female frames.
Attach planking to female frame mould, glass inside, add real bulkheads and glass in, and then roll and glass outside.
Less movement.
Less steps

Small draft and a lot of horsepower (relatively speaking) for a FD hull, maybe its SD. Pretty good price.

They say it'll do 12 - 14 kts wide open, so I'd say it's gotta be SD. Based on the 59' waterline length, hull speed is only about 10.3 kts on that thing.

I don’t see a picture of the underwater hull aft.
Probably has a rounded transom kinda like the Bartender has a pointed transom but I’ll bet they have a straight run aft w little or no buttock line angle ... like the planing Bartender.

Well you should have been there to tell them how to build their boat.

But it may be easier to finish the outside of the hull. For whatever reason they chose one of the two ways. Same result basically .. or totally. I personally prefer plywood or batten seam planked, Ashworth double planking or just carvelle planked. No problem w fairness then.

WOW! With twin 210hp 5.9 Cummins she'd cruise the world on one tank of fuel. I exaggerate but could you imagine going from 11 gph to like 3 gph at 7 knts.

The name "Tusitala" is a Samoan word meaning writer or teller of tales/stories. It was used for author Robert Louis Stevenson who spent part of his latter life there.

Yep. Robert Louis Stevenson had a boat with the same name but much larger.

My other thought is, it would be ďinterestingĒ to be on that boat in a big blow with all those panels catching lots of wind. When my big, heavy, sharp glass panels blew off in Dorian one of them smashed itself to bits into the side of another boat (sorry [emoji25]) and caused quite a bit of damage. The other one was still in one piece somehow, but it flew quite a distance from the boat. I canít imagine being around with those sharp panels flying. Iím sure they have theirs mounted better than I did however.

Beautiful boat. I didn't see an asking price, did I miss it?....Only saw estate will be selling for a fraction of replacement value.

4100 gallons of fuel?
That will set you back a few Confederate dollars.

Greetings,

Mr. SoF. I didn’t see any price listed either. What is the rationale behind this and don’t give me that arrogant “If you have to ask...”. BS. It’s up to ME whether I can or can’t or if I will or won’t afford/buy the item.
