Dumas kit by Fordtech Apprentice   Posted: 14 days ago
Hi, I’m reposting my reply because I click the link from my email and see it did not post on the app. I live in the US, I did find one listing for a fiberglass deep vee 60 on eBay for $149.95 which I think is a little high priced for a damaged kit. I’m really interested in a wood deep vee 60 kit but would consider a glass kit. I’ve tried multiple search terms and have not found any other listings. If you found other listings I would appreciate it if you could send me a link. Thanks! Best regards, Bob

Weight Too Much! by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Captain's Log: After careful consideration. I have decided to use only one battery at a time! This being 6.5 lbs. is way too much weight. Her bow is too low to the waterline. She get's thrown off by the weight. So, one battery at a time will be used! Now, having lowered the volts. From 12 volts to 6 volts is a problem. See her main motor and smoker. Are 12 volts each! So, now I have to replace. The main motor and the smoker. To a 6 volt system! This is not so easy. If any of you are familiar. With Dumas and Harbor model products. You know this ain't cheap!😭 Luckily, I will be selling both parts. Together next month! As both parts are in new condition! I will then order a 6 volt main motor and Smoker! Oh, each battery will give me about 1.5 hours of run time! And that's not bad at all..... NOTE: I'm only losing $10.00 on the resale of her Motor and Smoker!

Two SLA batteries provide ballast along with lead weight. Actual battery rating is 2 x24 = 24ah..... Gearing is from an older type model aircraft type. ESC is a marine type, forward, backward drive, big 4" Dumas prop. This tug is back in dry dock for addition of led navigational lighting. The initial build was undertaken while I was battling stage 4 cancer, it keep my mind occupied during chemo and surgery recovery, stayed positive! Model building is very meditative to me, try it if you have't, Have fun. Photos to come once out of dry dock.

Hi Joe, It's no problem, glad I could help! If you have any other questions. Please ask away! If you do decide to order from Harbor Models. They post their packages the same day! Trick is order early in the morning! I've ordered countless times from Harbor Models! they're a good company to order from. I've never had any problems ordering from them! Regards, Ed

Dumas Brooklyn Tug Build...Smoke? by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Joe, I have the small smoke generator! But, from what I saw on the Harbor Models website. You should pick the second one. As there are now three choices! That's the one I have. and it works like a champ! I use the 12 volt smoker. Definitely read the paper work. That come with it! PS. I know it's pricey. But, well wealth it! Regards, Ed Click here to see 6 volt smoker: https://www.harbormodels.com/har350-6.html
