Hi folks I don't know if this is good or bad ldea but. Going to post anyway I am attempting to build the tug boat Portgarth belng a newbi I asked what Skegness's was I know but everybody as to start somewhere deep diver put me right,my apologies for mistakeing him for someone else on a different forum sorry Fred.right back to my idea lt add got two cheeks witch you had to a shape so I decided to cut 1 inch dowling down the middle then cut it to fit the Skeg because I am led to belief that it is to displace water. Hope that it works. Regards Tom
PS: model grapnels! Now there's an idea👍 Could trawl some behind my Southampton tug 😉 Now it's past 2am here so: Over and OUT! Tomorrow is another day, and the first of the rest of our lives😉 Ciao, Doug 😎
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.
Hi guys tugboatguy here I'm now going to with draw my Tito neri from this site as it cost almost as much to ship it from Canada to Europe as I'm asking for it which is a shame and makes it not worth while to you to buy. The cost is around ,1400-1500 Canadian. So sorry

👍Detail of figures and dog added to Tug ... you can just see the dog at the back! 👍 I Googled 'model figures for Model tugboat' and several sites came up. - Hobbies at Revingham, Suffolk was one. Gaupner ( I think) was another.
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. It also comes with a new battery and carrying cradle. All you will need is a receiver that is compatible with your handset and away you go. Length of the boat is 36ins and beam 10ins. £450 Ono Please feel free to contact me anytime Iam based in Huddersfield West Yorkshire.
