The Harken 3 tug has a new hull and power.Speed 400 motor with 2.33/1 gear turning a 1 1/2" prop in a stearable nozzle (see Sealane build).Goes like stink in the sink but havn't had it in the pond as yet.Al

That'a a real beauty Al!!

Do you know Doug Allen?

He also built the "3", as I believe he ran it at one time.

fiddleing about in the shop today, decided to build a better stand for the Harken 3. With the new hull, more power bigger batteries,bigger speed control,she floats a little low the water is still below the guard and she is very stable and and silly powerful. Al

now that the radio is set up correctly, I tried the Harken 3 out at the pond today (sun came out, what a beautiful day) and it works really well. Club house locked so couldn't push the barges but moved the concrete launch steps over a couple inches. Here is a shot with the other new hulls.Al
