Sunk Boat Marker Buoy System by colinhubbard Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 days ago
Only needed once on an old tug, but made recovery very easy with my collapsible fishing rod which is always in my car set up with a small weight and a triple barbless hook. They are also handy for marking a coarse for manoeuvring control tests. Happy days Colin.

Will do tugboat, but I believe you have more chance with a taker in Canada. Shipping to Europe would be prohibitively expensive 🤔 Bon chance mon ami 😉 Pecker up! All the best, Doug

So sorry to learn of your health problems. I wish you well in the future. Would love to buy the Tug but too much for me I'm afraid. Thoughts and prayers. 👍

Hi Iam down sizing my boat collection so selling my harbour tug named " Rebecca " this is a beautiful model with loads of detail, it has been built to a high standard, built for model towing competitions. It has brass prop shafts and brass props it also has two decaperm motors for extra power, these motors are American and considered the Rolls Royce in electric motors they cost £80 each. It also has a fan cooled speed controller for reliability. This is truly a beautiful model and will give hours of entertaining sailing and reliability.

Length of the boat is 36ins and beam 10ins. £450 Ono Please feel free to contact me anytime Iam based in Huddersfield West Yorkshire.
