This ship model will be featured on the cover of my next book, Waterfront Terminals and Operations. It will be published by Kalmbach Publishing direct from their website. It will also be available on Amazon. They are taking pre-orders now.

Hi,

I got to the Anna Marie build in your book. And since I have a similar project with the Anna Marie, it was an useful chapter for me. I was going to cut a hole in the layout to accomodate the ship without touching the hull, but your remark about the partially visible rudder and propeller that would leave a "nasty" join at the back of the ship ... I didn't though of that !
I find the Anna Marie is a perfect ship for Heavy lifts and project cargo, with its massive onboard cranes. But I would like to depic an open cargo bay, with a loaded locomotive inside. And since the floor of the cargo bay sits below see level, even with a waterline cut, I still need to make a hole in the layout.  :-\

I'm glad that you found that section useful.
Cutting a hole in the benchwork (baseboards)  for the ship's hold is much simpler that trying to cut a hole for the complete hull.

I am now looking at adding a section of the layout to accommodate the Liz Terkol tanker.
