Looking better Jason  :) What did you use for the 'filler'' and I could recommend a 4 blade propellor which will be more efficient and gives more thrust.

Regards, Dan.

ps, obviously for the maximum thrust possible from a kort nozzle, you would need kort props, depending on the diameter you are left with within you kort nozzle you may need to order props or if you are lucky you could find some to fit perfect  :)
Photos / Information, I nearly have them all !

hi dan

my plan is to get a pair 4 blade kort props i will get some 50mm props in the korts as the copper pipe is 55mm (dia) if some one as some for sale they need to fit a M4 shaft the filler is car body filler with a strip of 5mm by 10mm plastic card

thanks jason

You've given me the inspiration to get on with my Smit Ned 're-build' project.

I've been working on a couple of other tug projects...yet to be announced :-X :-X
