    Hi Colin,
    Can't help with the tug I'm afraid, although from hull and funnel form she looks relatively modern. Googling J & P McConnell turned up a load of American judges and such but nothing relevant โ˜น๏ธ
    That Supermarine looks in a tad better condition than the one you sent me for renovation ๐Ÿ˜‰ Interesting that the spacers appear to be brass, whereas the one I renovated had aluminium (or rather aluminium dust!๐Ÿค”) spacers.
    The Hitec ESC is very familiar ๐Ÿ˜Š I still have one (in working order) which did sterling service for a good 30 years, first in my destroyer and later in my Sea Scout before the latest refit with brushless.
    It should work fine with your renovated Supermarine on a 7.2V NiMh or a 2S LiPo ๐Ÿ‘
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    Young at heart - slightly older in other places ๐Ÿ˜‰ Cheers Doug

    Whilst I was at the Abergavenny steam and vintage show today I was offered some model boat stuff for a charity donation. Box of assorted boat fittings and a box of motors etc including another Taycol, plus a mistery box. When I got home I opened the box to find a large tug Hull and decks but no name or instructions. So if anyone has details of this tug I will be eternally grateful. All parts are labelled, J&P. McConnell, Mersey Tugs, Catalogue number 00603.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.
