Hmmm...nothing in the main (Denmark) catalogue, only in the US. ??? ???

Sounds like a good deal, with all the fittings and such; and 1000mm long.

Just my opinion, but those colours.......... :-X :-X

Good Find!!

Saw it too, looks ok but says it's a wooden hull, I'd prefer fibreglass or at least abs.  I'd definitely use different colors than that.

 ;D ;D ;D

Any tug looks great in ORANGE  :)   ;D ;D

I agree with tbone, it would be nice to have a fibreglass or abs hull  :) But the price including fittings sounds good  :)

I can't see a problem with the colours, at least you won't lose sight of her on the lake  ;D

So Dan, why not build the kit hull and use it as a plug to make a GRP hull. You could offer it for sale on the Forum.

I thought of that MTM  :) But couldn't sell hulls, surely that is breaching a copyright issue  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I am waiting for them to get some more back in stock then I will buy one and have a go at it  :)
