Check out the "Unique Scratch-built tug for renovation" on ebay.uk
Also the 'Spurn Point', from the same seller.

Listed under tug, category 'Boats and Hovercrafts'.
If you 'click' on the picture at the top of the page, there's a dozen or so pictures to look through.

Also, on ebay.com (USA) there is a 'Lindsey Foss' kit for sale, down in Waco Texas.
Worth looking at 8)  Item # 150277383752

On the ebay.com (USA) listing, he's selling all 3

 first is the ron burchett foss tug hull,
then is the pusher,  and if the pusher reaches he ideal price you
can buy the barge ;D
the foss tug he claims will cost you $3000 to build ???

There certainly seems to have been a spate of these enigmatic items "for sale" lately and even though it is extremely annoying for genuine bidders you have to laugh at the absurd antics of some of these sellers. Perhaps they do it for a laugh as well?  ;D

Is it just me or does anyone else think this might be some sort of sham? I've seen this hull on ebay a few other times, never was sure as to what to make of it.

Hello all, I imagine that the Happy Hunter has been painted into MCA colours like the one shown here https://mcanet.mcga.gov.uk/press/MSC-Napoli-Salvage-Operation/MSC_Napoli_21_01_2007_074_1

You can always check out the Maritime and Coastguard Ageny website at http://www.mcga.gov.uk/c4mca/mcga07-home.htm for more info than you'll ever need about the seas around Great Britain.

Hi MadRob,

Looks quite a good model, as he says it does need a little clean up.
Some nice details there, I particularly like his plug in working mast, might take his idea up for my next one.
Thanks for posting it.

... and welcome to the forum  :)

Cheers - Ken

Hi madrob, welcome to the forum. An interesting find on e-bay and it looks good a well made model. As the description goes it really states the obvious about needing a clean the alternative is the weathering is so realistic. I would think the bidding on this one could go quite high if the location doesn't put people off travelling to collect it.

cheers

Thanks for that Mike, I punched in Joffre in the search, but asided from photos of 1914-18 Joffre nothing else came up.
As it was a River Tyne tug I was interested, but the photos eother dont do it justice or the appearance is a little shabby.

Not really Mike,
I hate Ebayers who put items up for auction wive a hidden reserve.
If they want a minimum price then just set the starting price at that level instead of wasting peoples time trying to guess how much they want - I never bid on these autions.

The actual kit is several years old and no way did he pay that price for it, probably 425-450 at the most.

Change of subject for a moment,
whilst replying to this thread, I've just received a warning from Microsoft that this is a suspicious site !
They are warning me it could be a phishing site and not to forward any information to it.
I've never seen this warning before, have you .... this message will self destruct in 10 - 9 - 8

The 'Imara' certainly is.
The basic kit retails for 450, plus 2 Decaperms, speed controllers, battery and brass props.
If you can win the bid for 300-400, you would have a bargain.

The wedding is in Whickham and the reception at the Marriot Hotel Metrocentre in Gateshead, where we are staying for two nights..
: Re: Tug on Ebay
: Cragsider June 26, 2009, 05:52:50
Oh boy Barry that means your card is going to come under some pressure, as the Metro Centre was Europes largest shopping centre/mall, lots of clothes and shoe shops :) Check your excess baggage limit  :o as I can see it being exceeded  ;)
 The Marriot and Metro Centre are mor or less opposite where I work situated on the South Bank of the Tyne. Plus I guess you will be flying in so it is a nice easy taxi ride of 8 miles along the A1
And it is Tyneside, so enjoyment is garranteed,

Hi Kieran, I have just found this quote on a website, hope it helps ;

Ballast check
Before proceeding much further the hull was placed in the domestic bath and weighted to bring it close to the waterline - a total of 46 pounds was needed comprising two 12 volt lead acid batteries, one 6 volt battery and some 25 pounds of lead sheet of 1/8in thickness.

Hello all, well if I were buying one today I don't know if there'd be a great advantage in buying the 1st edition from 1999 or the 2nd from 2006? Anyhow Dan'll have both I'm sure  ;D and as he is now an honorary Aberdonian the fact that the 2nd edition is reduced at the moment might have helped the outlay on the current rebuild of the Yorkshireman. On www.abebooks.co.uk there are a pair of ridiculously priced copies at 25 & 50 respectively  :o

the link to the shop for the reduced ones is https://shop.traplet.com/product.aspx?c=2657 I hope this helps someone enter our wonderfull hobby, neigh passion / obsession  :)

You did'nt miss a post Mike!

The fellow I sold my 'Southampton' to in Victoria, mentioned to me that he had a 'hull' laying around in his w/shop; that he wanted to sell....then asked if I knew of anyone who may be interested.

I don't have any pictures of it (Kieran or Glen would), but it's a good looking 'Classic' style fibreglass hull, of some 30" in lenght, and a 9.5" Beam.

Single screw; with bulwarks molded in.

...Cheers...

: Re: Tug on Ebay
: nhp651 December 28, 2009, 02:38:10
Ohhh, I don't know so much, Andy....depends on what value you place on your models........

I have just paid 100 to have 3 award winning models and a steam plant shipped up from Reading/Basingstoke last Monday when they didn't sell at auction and the auction house was closing for Christmas (remember the weather down there that day).

And that was  by a private courier on a special journey down from Blackpool area.

They were looked after like I would have done myself, and mollycoddled and wrapped in duvets for the journey.....and not ONE single bit of any model was damaged.......all were uncased by the way.

So, I say that if that 100 quid paid to such a courier saved me some many hours work in fixing what Parcelfarce have undone with boats in the past that WERE encased in a specially made carrying case........I for one think that well worth it.

It would have cost me more that the hundred quid in fuel and hotel fees to drive down and collect anyway.

All relative really :) :) :)

100 is fair enough for 3 boats transported on a long journey I suppose, though in your case I would have driven down for them myself.

120 for 1 boat to be transported how far? Someone more local might win the auction, then what, they transport it by helicopter? I think it's very expensive unless the buyer lives in Inverness  :-\

I suppose, though in your case I would have driven down for them myself.



thing is, I'm not stupid, especially when the weather forcast was as is, . but even so, when traffic and motorways are the way they are these days, why spend 100 quid on petrol and wear and tear on your own car when someone else will do the same job for same money....only a mad mad would think differently. ;D ;D ;D

He did a private deal and then took it off e-bay. Not really in the spirit of e-bay.
