    A bit of crabbing
    https://photos.smugmug.com/Stevns-Arctic/i-F6MVhBN/0/c4abd0c...

    After 3 hrs on the water my transmitter battery was too low so called it a day.
    On checking the main batteries they were still close to 13 volts

    Hi T3,
    If you have had your two Civid jabs you will grow a third hand in no time LOL!!

    Nice to see her on the water.
    A really nice Tug.
    You will have to get someone else to shoot the video while you put her through her paces.
    That i would like to see.

    Martin555.

    Brilliant ability to go sideways, three cheers for the invention of the thruster, I trust she does go ahead and astern as well! Looks great on the water. Well done.
    I like the harbour installations.

    Well done, it looks great, does the crane operate or just a static feature. Is the hook from a piece of jewellery as it looks like the one on my wife's necklace.

    Best I can do with only one pair of hands.
    Things established today.
    At full steam no water comes up the anchor chain ways.
    Steering is much easier without using the steerable drives.
    My chosen car ESC’s do not need cooling

    That is always a problem especially with separate throttles and tank steering πŸ˜‚

    A bath of water doesn't figure in the bigger picture of 10 months work and well over a grand in materials and parts 😎

    What is the length of the tub? 4’ save the water my wife will say. She would use it to water plants in the garden, though you’ve probably pulled the plug by now, eh.
