    Started with a Dumas kit of the tug "Brooklyn". I did not like that the kit was mostly plastic and not suitable for steam power. So, based on the photo I turned it to the "Long Island".

    The gearing is 3:1 but with a 12v motor salvaged from a small appliance. (I save everything.) The motor mount, fan, gearing setup, I made from a piece of square aluminum tube of unknown origin. This way the motor did not have to be offset to accommodate the gearing. Working with the two piece ABS hull and other plastic parts was difficult unless you are familiar with this material.
