    Many thanks Fleet, will be putting in one of my P94's
    that should make it a bit easier to control.
    Lovely place the biergarten, used to spend a bit of time,(and money) there, when I was in Munich.๐Ÿ˜‹

    Good idea Peter ๐Ÿ‘
    I'm about to put a P94 in my destroyer!
    When were you in Munich?
    They rebuilt the Biergarten 'Ausschank' a few years ago.
    It's now much closer to the corner where I sail (3rd & 4th pics) ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I see now Jb, the Tug is used for (RAS) replenishment at sea.LOL!
    With reference to the oil I can see now where the saying "slipped it's moorings" came from.LOL!

    Perhaps I should equip the MTB with a deck tank and magnetic filler nozzle for ship to ship bunkering Martin.๐Ÿ˜‚ The 3ft resident eel under the jetty is still alive and kicking so it can't be too bad. Quite funny, a small kid turned up with his mum and they put a 12" fast electric 'cat' racer in the water and within about 10 seconds the eel was up along side having a sniff at it. Very tame, must be fed well there!

    Jb,
    I think you're next project should be a nice big Oil Tanker, then you could refuel with oil as many times as you like.

    Have been in Munich many,many times Doug, (thought the Biergarten looked a little different?) but not for the last 10 years. Had some friends there, they lived on Antonwill Str, also friends in Unterhausen bei Oberhausen D86697, both sets of friends now deceased, miss going there, have worked in many towns/city's, from way up north, Keil and Lubeck,
    and of course Hamburg,but always prefer Bavaria,
    more culture, nicer people and lovely Munich.๐Ÿป

    Hi Guys
    Regret to say, Doug that I have never made it to Ostmark yet, although I now the Airport, Hauptbahnhof and Muchen Ost quite well. Not figured out so far how to pack a model so I could join you for Bier and Bavarian Hospitality. Had some of that in Frankenwald this September.
    Now to Yorkshireman Tug, Rocky. I run one of the early ones with the rubber belt reduction, driving each shaft, controlled by a P94 on individual sticks.
    Plus a bow thruster, rudders on right stick and Thruster on the left one
    All powered at 6 volts from a couple pf 6 volt 14 Amphr sealed lead acids, no need for extra ballast with those babies on board, It all works fine and after a little refresh after a lay off she will behave very well. Even giving enough confidence to take a hand off to consume refreshment, liquid or solid!!
    Happy sailing
