Notes for boat builders and modellers

BCN Tugs:
Many builders ask for BCN Tug drawings. BCN tugs are very mis-understood, very few were purpose built and those built were low fairly brutal ugly machines. The classic idea of the BCN tug is a 50 foot long decked over boat, an extended cabin. This is, on the whole, not correct, however Ernest Thomas of Walsall cut down some Fellows Morton & Clayton boats to produce tugs and these together with a handful of other firms boats produced from other full length boats, have become the general impression of a BCN tug. Use drawings 8602 / 8607 to produce the lines required by shortening the hull and lengthening the cabin.

Modellers:
Good results can be obtained from all the drawings, however where possible research the prototype and observe the hull lines carefully. The various museums around the country have many craft and examples of most types are not hard to find. A good boat to model is the Town Class (Large Northwich) motor, the plan is detailed and plenty of examples can be found.

Notes on drawings:
Most are General arrangements and are to ½" to 1 ft scale. Some drawings refer to sub drawings "See separate drawing", in almost all cases these have disappeared and may not ever be available. Most items are copied direct from the original where possible, however due to the fragile and damaged nature of some originals we have had to re-draw the item.

Further help:
Narrow boats have not benefited in the same way as ships and railway locomotives by having volumes of work written about them. Today there are a number of good books which will assist the builder / modeller; I certainly recommend the "Robert Wilson" series and "Narrow Boat" by Tom Chaplin. Last but not least there is of course our "Narrowboat Art and History" film series.
