    Hi Rick,

    I really like the way the rudder came out!

    And the grab rails also look great!

    Are they hand made or pressed the grad rails?

    Hi Edulop,

    No the Kort Nozzles comes with the kit!
    I haven't measured then But, I believe they are 50mm Nozzles
    They are of a very good quality mode!

    What I did was I purchase the Happy Hunter along with the other items needed!
    I purchase the Motors from Krick!
    And the Bow Thruster!
    Oh, And the Fittings Kit also!

    Later, I will take a picture of the contents!

    Cheers, Ed

    BTW, A very nice kit!

    Hi Colin,

    That's a very good find!

    I'm sure you'll be able to find a suitable model.

    Good Morning Cash,

    Unfortunately, I don't have the right camera! So I can't take any pictures yet!
    And I'm presently taking a course on my new Amateur Radio! That's another one of my hobbies!

    But, As soon as I get my camera I'll start my blog!

    Thanks, for the interest and I'm looking forward to Blogging the build of the Happy Hunter!

    It should be a lot of fun!

    And a lot of details.........

    Regards, Ed πŸ‘

    PS, As you can tell by these pictures!
    I really need a camera! LOL!

    PPS, Cash, I got the whole entire thing!
    I've got the Happy Hunter Salvage Tug Kit,
    The Fittings Set Happy Hunter,
    The Power Set Happy Hunter,
    Plus the Cort nozzle!
    It should take me about 2 years to complete!
    Or less all depending on how much I work on her!

    I'll start my Blog as soon as I start the build!
    But, I plan On taking my time with it!

    It comes in a small spray can!
