Peter Hall, a retired mechanical engineer from Parksville, left, gives a close inspection to the detail work applied to a Seaspan barge and tugs by Tom Stevens of Everett, Wash.

Hall originally built the barge, but eventually gave it to Stevens who reworked the models, adding countless hours of minute finishing touches.

During his career, Hall designed the original equipment for the coal loading terminal at Roberts Bank and was one of the engineers on the Iron Workers Memorial Bridge.

Dozens of model craft were on display alongside Stevens’s barge, which featured a fully functioning remote control crane and tug boats, on display during the Nanaimo Boat Modellers annual show at Country Club Centre on the weekend.
