« on: January 05, 2016, 11:17:58 »
Hi All,
Happy New Year!
Just started my new tug build can any one guess what sort of tug I'm going to build by the parts and construction photo's released as the build progresses?

Good choice of motors - tough to find right now.
Looking forward to your next steps.

That is a nice looking tug - I probably have some photos of it from when I saw it in Campbell River.
Are you going to build your own hull?

Hi All,
Some more bits done to the brass work.
Yes I like the YUCATA, but I may do something freelance haven't decided yet.

You have a side mounted support on each side below the deck are they for a speed controller stand?

I'm guessing those supports are for separate steering servos for each side. Just guessing from seeing the steering arm type and position on each nozzle

Hi Gary,
the two mounts either side are for 2 heavy duty servos for the nozzles.
