A very nice Tug indeed. Enough info there to 'scratch build' eh !

What does the Law ( or the owners ) say about copying a boat in model form, and perhaps even selling versions of it  :D

Cheers...Ken

I don't think there is a law in this country against it, don't know about the States tho. You can ask the builder/ designer about copying the plans at model scale. In fact some would even send you scaled down copy, think Damen shipyards are good for that sort of thing.

Hi lad's  if you think that's interesting why not have a look at rotor tug on google  and the web site's
http://www.rotortug.com/scripts/developments.php

this would be one hell of a tug and a regatta winner evey time .
there is one small prob ,the shottle's would set you back nearly 300 alone (ouch)
