: single kort nozzle tugboat kit
: seathug June 15, 2014, 13:24:14
Can someone reccomend a single kort nozzle tugboat kit?
Just Like the odin tugboat?
Reason why I like the odin
Is that it looks pretty easy enough for a beginner to just add the running gears
since theres already a space or something for the running gear to sit on

My Amsterdam pulls my 10ft inflatable around the pond quite easily.  Have not tried it with me in the inflatable.  Does not have a Korts  steering, but have heard other guys have modified it to fit one.

I think I prefer the fixed kortnozzle more than the steerable korts
Ill try to pull something with the aziz when im done
Need to modify the towing post though
