    Springer Tug with fibreglass hull and plastic card deck. The rest of the build I have done on 3D printer using the easy cad part programme just as a fun project to see what could be done on a 3D printer by a beginner.
    The Shottel drives I bought and are driven by speed 600 motors, also I bought the 19mm bow thruster. The lights are all working remote using a quad switch from Action Electronics the spotlights can move on mountings and lens are removable for lamp replacement, with the rear flashing beacons coming on when the winch is selected using the aux channel.
    The engine sound generator works from the throttle channel and the horn operates on the gear switch. As I have only one loudspeaker fitted below the winch platform the gear switch for the horn also energises a relay which transfers the loudspeaker signal from engine to horn.
    Speed controllers are fitted to bow thruster and winch motors.
    There is also a photo sensor on the front which brings on the flashing light on wheelhouse roof when a object is within 150mm from it(ie boat to be pushed).
    The names on side and rear are all 3D printed letters not transfers. And the wheelhouse roof is held on with magnets for easy replacement of lamps or resistors.
    I have also fitted with two receivers to work from either of my two transmitters for convenience if a rescue is required, while I am sailing with one transmitter then I can use the other. This is easily selected by use of double pole three position slide switch.
    Apologies for photos being a bit mixed up.
