: Question about Caldercraft Tug Imara
: gdpirie August 24, 2018, 17:27:17
I have pretty much completed my Caldercraft Tug Imara after 5 months.  I have had to make a couple of parts and had a few little parts left over.  No big deal.  I did, however; have two parts that I have no idea where they go.  If any Imara builders could identify those parts I would be grateful.  I have enclosed a picture of my Imara and the parts in question.

Looks like a nice build - run it in the pond yet?

Yes, it has had a run in the pond and worked well.

Almost look like some kind of saddle for holding some thing to.

It was in a parts bag that had white metal parts for the deck and some for the superstructure.  The Imara kit has 1400 parts.  Their count, not mine.  While there is a parts list there is nothing that absolutely identifies a part.  You just have to go by instinct and the plan sheets.  These 2 parts are obviously not integral to the functioning of the boat, but it is now just a matter of idle curiosity.  I am about to go through the white metal parts list and check all the parts that have 2 of, listed.  That brings the possible list down to a hundred or so.
