Higman Leader Push Boat by metalikhajoe Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 10 months ago
Hello everyone. Thanks for your suggestions. Ok will keep the superstructure light and just make the hull heavier to keep it stable. Thanks so much. Best regards to all. joel

hello sonar! yes I saved all the files on my pc so if everythinh is ok I wiil cut them out for the final boat hello johnlikessailing & rolfman2000. I never thought that it would be of concern as I followed the boats plans. I guess I hav to take ur advice about materials I should use for the superstructure. Would it help if I redesigned the Hull by making it deeper or rounded in the base instead of it being flat? Your opinions please. thanks

Hello everyone! I finally found a boat I can build.Got a few pix and a data for the Higman Leader Boat. I will scratch build the boat and have started drawing. Cut my drawings and here is what I have accomplished so far. The boat will be 36 in (length) and 11.5 in (breadth). Its still in cardboard box material for now. Will do the final model on marine plywood.😎All your inputs are welcome as I am a newbie in this hobby. Thanks!

First Boat Build in Progress by metalikhajoe Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 10 months ago
Hello figtree7nts! Yikes! Im not sure about the scale but I just made my drawings 30 inches in length also by about 14 inches wide (breath) Its almost 16 inches in height. Sorry I dont know the right terms but I will learn. Not sure how much she will weigh but its all in cardboard box for now. She would probably look very similar to your tug. thanks for the reply and the pix. Hope its ok if I use it as reference for my own build. Attached is the pix where Im basing my build. thanks

Hello everyone! just starting on my first tow/pusher tug boat. planning to build this from scratch. found a pix of a boat dat I wanted and came up with this. Not much details on it yet but its always good to start somewhere.Laser cut cardboard box material for now. will use marine plywood once all details and proper measurements are ok.

Hello everyone! Just joined the group and this is my first post. I saw some pix of Tug Boats in the net and wanted to try making one from scratch. I tried looking for free plans but I could not find any. I hope some of you can share me some plans if you have any to share. I have an access to a laser cutter and I know it will help me a lot in my build. I also do graphic lay outing on CorelDraw. Hope to meet new friends here. I have also attached some of my builds.
