Posting this on Glen's behalf:

Hi Mike,

We are having difficulty posting to the Forum.  We're attaching a couple of pictures of "The Duck".  The first picture shows on the stern that it does have a tow hook.  Therefore it must be a tug!!  I used one of those $12.00 speed controls and it seems to work fine.  I attached a combing today.  I still have to coat it with Dip-it.  to make it waterproof.

That looks like a bunch of fun! Nice job Puffin.

What type of speed controller for $12.00? :o Always on the look out for bits and pieces that cost under $20.00. That way I can hoard them for future projects and not feel guilty   ;D

Hi Andy:  I get them from R2 Hobbies out of Hong Kong.  Just go to www.r2hobbies.com .  Their shipping rates are very reasonable and they are fast.  They are quicker than Vancouver to Vancouver Island.  Their radios are pretty good too.  (6 channel 2.4g $37.00)
