54" Kingston Lacy for sale
« on: October 19, 2012, 13:34:07 »
 ^-^ I have decided to sell my 54" Kingston lacy, she is scratch built from the original drawings ( see build log in the classic diesel tug section all twelve pages of it) fitted with a Peugeot Boxer cooling fan motor, 18 amp hour battery about 30 lbs of removable ballast, planet 2.4 reciever, and 50amp speed controller,
she is a BIG powerfull tugbut easy to move around as all the weight comes out. she has pulled 20lbs on the ballance scale so she has bags of power.

I would like in the region of 850 for her but she would be COLLECTION only owing to her size.
collection from Gravesend Kent

Some more pictures.

She is built from 9mm ply frames with 3mm ply sheathing and resin coated inside and out

Video of her underway on page 10 of the build log.
