Number 2 attempt springer Tug - Posted: 1 year ago by none
So this was attempt number two at a springer tug.. A little better than the very first one.

Again a home made grp hull and everything else Balsa wood and a few bits I could find about the house..

Well this one too has been scrapped and the hull reused.
Or set aside for another one at a later date.

So at this time is just a fitted out hull

1st ever Spinger tug model - Posted: 1 year ago by none
Well this was the very first model boat i made.
A springer tug.
I made a mould and then made a few just in case i was to the point of everything going wrong at least I could start another one.

Apart from the home made GRP hull everything else was made in Balsa wood.

Since been scrapped but the hull and all the electrics ect have been reused again for another version..

Saw this Tug under shelter in Mahone Bay, N.S. - Posted: 1 year ago by Ron
I know it was built in 1959 as the DPW tugboat "Enmore". It was named T.A.2 until 2009. Does anyone know anything else about this type of tug?

I got the information from this website:

Amara - Posted: 1 year ago by Rod
I built this one from a Caldercraft kit and powered it with a twin screw steam engine
Model has steam horn sound together with bilge pump and fully equipped lighting system
Have extensively weathered the model to create realism to imitate what it probably looked like after many years steaming and working round the world in the 1930's
A smoke generator has also been fitted which together with the twin screw steam engine gives a realistic look when on the water

This is the kit I am offering to Garibaldi. I bought it as a gift for my grandson but lost interest. That was 24 years ago, and it has sat in my garage ever since I am ashamed to say

Smit Rotterdam 478 - Posted: 1 year ago by sandkb
I've been building this Billings kit for some years now. [laid the keel in 2007 !!] but I'm slowly getting there. I've just recently joined this Website so not sure if this is the correct place to post some pictures of this build plus a yacht and steam launch. I'll start here anyway and no doubt someone will advise me for future postings.

Hi sandkb
Looking good. If you are intending to post build updates and ask for help I suggest you go to Build Blogs and start your own blog. You can then keep adding to the blog when you have progressed with the build. It not only helps inspire others, but may result in others sharing their own experiences with similar builds.
Good luck with the build and if you like my post please tick the like box.

Good strong tug, just like the real thing. Is it a kit and if so where can it be bought?
Response by watson220 on the 28th Jan 2017
It's not a classic kit from a reputable manufacturer produces a fellow marine modeller.

I have used my tugs to tow me round in a dingy, the looks from people watching are superb
Response by figtree7nts on the 10th Jan 2017
Hi chrys
Well, at 97Lbs that's quite impressive, you must make a video!

Hi jarvo
I'm must say I'm guilty of towing a rowboat while I was in it too.
People at the pond where amazed at how much power my little Tugboat had.

Creepy - Posted: 1 year ago by chumbucket
This is Creepy,a springer tug that is 5 yrs old now.He pushes #1200lb pumpkins for the pumpkin regatta along with saving many of the PMPBA club members boats from certain sinking or floating away.I never go to any of the club floats without him.He runs a Harbor freight 550 motor running a Target Hobby 320amp ESC,on a 5000mah 2s lipo battery.The plans can be downloaded free off the internet and takes about a week to build for the experienced builder,Great for the new boat builders to do because its an easy build tug.Simple door skins,some balsa,1/2a running gear from Dumas,1.5 brass prop,2x2 rudder from aluminum,cheap 2channel radio,ESC from Target Hobby.
