A daily updated blog typed by someone with painty hands, oil under his fingernails and the smell of solder in his nostrils who likes making all sort of models and miniatures. And fixing things.
Bantam's were very much designed as pusher tugs.And if ever you feel like building another Bantam, how about trying the prototype? I bet it would get lots of comments about being unrealistic https://brentfordandchiswicklhs.org.uk/e-c-jones-son-brentford-boatbuilder/
Back when I was a lock keeper on the thames I had the dubious pleasure of telling a tug skipper pushing a similar barge that I'd received complaints about his wash. I did however tell him I'd noted his section time in the reach and that he couldn't possibly have, and that I fully appreciated the problems his vessel might have with wash. He was pleased not to receive a ticket, and nobody could say I'd not carried out my duty!
