Dickie Seaport Tug - Good Source for Drive Shaft
« on: August 08, 2017, 02:31:57 PM »

I just got a Dickie Seaport Tug for the princely sum of $4.00 at my local thrift store  8) . I have completely gutted it and am starting to work my way back out starting at the drive end. Does anyone have a good source for the drive shaft and prop shaft as a set? I will eventually put a brass 50mm prop. on it, but I want to keep the total length of the drive shaft about the same.

Found out the hard way you should never put clear plastic into near-boiling water {:-{ It becomes a Shrinky Dink. My clear deck windows are now 5% smaller in all dimensions...... >>:-(
