Hello Marky,

Good plan for starting to build your tugboat in your mind's eye. I'm sure
that after reading the first chapter you will have settled on the scale and
which tug you would like to have a model of plus several of your many first
concerns will be settled.

I am going to assume that the book that would serve you, and myself,
will be named something like, "So You Want To Build A Tugboat".

I would love to hear from those here on the Forum who have read different
model boat building books and your opinions about them.

There is much information about choosing your motor, RC equipment, and prop
sizes here in the Forum. Search through the different Forum list of subjects
and you will find many others who began their tugboat journey from the
ideas and suggestions thoughtfully shared.

Thank you Marky for a good question that will give us all more tugboat ideas,
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
