Hi, I have just aquired a tug named Smit Zweden, but cant seem to find any info on it. It has abs hull and all wood superstructure with twin props. Can anyone help with basic info such as kit manufacturer. I suspect it is a Billings kit but would it not be plank on frame?

This will be Billings kit BB528 - Smit Nederland. Not all Billings kits are plank on frame, some,like this one have ABS hulls.

...Hi Holtom...

If you go to www.tugspotters.com  Then go to database   Select the Letter S and look for SMIT ZWEDEN...You will find lots of pics & info on the real tug...

You can also select SMIT,s own website from the logos on the front page...

I hope this helps you...

..Best Regards...Norry...
