Smit Hunter, what could have been till she was burnt out. Happy Hunters colour was to bright for me, the Smit colours suited her superbly

I remember seeing the Meeching as a child when we were travelling from Eastbourne to Brighton to visit relatives. This was back in the late 70's/early 80's. We often used to break our journey in Newhaven, where we would stop for a picnic lunch, and watch the boats and ships in the harbour. Happy days :-)
Are their any plans available anywhere? Would love to have a go at making a model :-))

Well, it has to be Meeching, for obvious reasons. Still going strong at the age of 55 as Nore Crest. I also like ocean going tugs and Elbe is top of my list.

 %% good eyes.
Fart seems to be danish for speed, nearly the same word in german just with an h: Fahrt

This is how it looks like right now (since 6 weeks  :embarrassed: )
Very cute thing, just 30cm and will weigh only 700g fully loaded.
But powered by a 28mm Brushless to be able to push some other boats.
