Welcome Aboard Jason

Keep the pictures and details coming..OK!!!!

A very interesting project you have on the go :) :) :) :)

As you've noticed, I split the previous topic and created a new thread for you here :) :)

This way, your build doesn't get buried in the Images Only thread.

...Cheers...

HI TUGBOYBEN ;  That is really a great build there . If you put a under wind on your winch drum you will in crease the stability of your tug as you have a real high center of effort . It could be a problem when towing .               PUFFIN
