Tug Of War
« on: June 08, 2015, 13:49:45 »
Having two Robbe Odin in the club, there's been bit of banter of which one is more powerfull for the last couple of months.

So at our regatta on Sunday, it was setteled.

Enjoy.

Ha ha ! Surprisingly even.

I assume you both run the original Robbe Power 1000 motor and plastic prop ?

I also have a Odin but I'm contemplating the idea of upgrading her to a metal prop ...

Well Dimtim, you indeed made my evening.

I am sitting here by my machine tryting to rest a bit after running water tests
all day in my test tank to see which of my, same ratings motors, pull the most.
Exactly like your tug power test, except I could just plain enjoy your test to the max.

Thank you for the terrific tugboat sharing Dimtim,
Michael
Yet another case of why men and women go down to the sea in ships. . .A pleasure to be here and smell the salt air. Thank you Tugboat Forum. . .Michael in Anacortes, Washington www.twotugboats.com

thanks, both of them have the upgraded power 1000 and plastic prop's. would like a brass one.

was a bit worried as he kept winding me up say it had been upgraded with a more powerfull brushless motor and would let me look inside for last few times he brought it down.
