I mentioned that I had ordered two new plans to consider as another project. These are they.
First of all a simple tug based on the SunXXI
The other is a Glyn Guest Work boat that uses a vectored thrust arrangement
I have decided to make Sunny. I will start a build log when I get some material. I had quite a problem finding a supplier that had both the balsa and Liteply that I required. Unfortunately my local supplier is still not available.
The work boat is more difficult. I am not sure that I can make the thrust unit. I will be doing more research on this and some experiments to assess if I have the necessary skills.
If I do eventually decide to attempt this it will be a different hull construction. The plans call for 12mm pine and 1/8th ply from B&Q
I've also bought a Dumas model of a US Army tug, but that is going into store until October at the earliest.
I've also listed two models for sale on Ebay
