    I enjoy building tug boats, especially the tugs that ply the Yukon River delta and tributary rivers.

    As a model railroader and model boat builder, this thing is cool! I have thoughts about using my 3D printer to make railroad stuff. Great model.

    I flagged that post as spam. I should have recognized it from the UL.

    It is scratch built from pictures and some plans I picked up when I was stationed in Alaska in the 80s.
    I drew up the model based on those plans and pictures.

    The MV Pasotlik is a Yukon River tug boat that was built from 2 LCMs on the beach in Nenana Alaska by the Yutana Barge lines. My model is 1/24 scale printed on my 3D Printer. There is 2 ESCs one for 2 motors and one for the last one. At some point I will build a custom radio and have all three on separate ESCs for better control.

    I have been puttering away on this model for 30+ years. It was stored for 25 of that but I am either going to finish it or sell it and build more smaller models.

    53" Long, 95#s, 1989 Futaba ESC, 1980 Chevy Blazer heater motor connected to a 4-1 Midwest Models gearbox, to a 4" 4 blade prop. It will run for hours on the deep cycle rv/marine battery.

    @RodC I wish I could run up there. By the time you get through the border it is a whole day. The Buffalo club is closer but even that is a haul that late in the day.

    I actually go to Florida in the winter and stay at Markham Park. It would be nice to have someone to run boats with. They have a pond for the very noisy and loud speed boats but I haven't run my tugboats there yet.
    Cheers,
    Phil
