Every now and again you have to take a sit, relax look on to the water before your told get back to work!

A nice still shot of the Tug on the lake today, towing a small barge with sand

Sorry, didn't realise I hadn't answered this question! I used a sail winch mounted under the deck, with the line going through the central tube that the crane is mounted on. I had to add a piece of curved plastic to allow it to go round 90 degrees (half a piece of the inside of a ball point pen!) but it works well.

That explains your abilities! My abilities are what can I glue next!

Nope, an Estate Agent! (As well as bring the son of an engineer... %uD83D%uDE0E)

I will say it again, truly ingenious what you've accomplished. job well done, are you an engineer?

Toby Tug (previously a Seaport Workboat) by EricMB Commander   Posted: 2 years ago
Here's the photos of the cord coming through the middle of the crane, connected to the sail winch on the bottom end. The bracket to get it to go round 90 degrees had to be modified as it started jamming with no weight on the hook, now a piece of bent tube cut in half as a channel.

As the turret is mounted on a hollow tube, this allows the cord to run through the middle of the crane, over the jib and down to the hook, and on the other end, attached to a sail winch so that the hook can be raised and lowered. Will add pics in a sec.

Crane story part 3! Now that the jib raised and lowered, I had to tackle rotating the turret. I canibilsed a radar setup I'd made (again from helicopter parts after a crash!) to rotate the turret. Video of the radar motor in operation shown.

Question how do you control the line going up and down?

Toby Tug (previously a Seaport Workboat) by EricMB Commander   Posted: 2 years ago
Yup, three blade plastic prop on the two part prop shaft. I modified the prop shaft with an additional oil filler tube for lubrication tho.. Kept it quieter!
