A modified Model Slipway Wyeforce 1/24th tug perhaps? Maybe install steerable korts as appose to the fixed ones.. Also maybe a bow thruster.

Hi,

From Experience I can heartily reccommend Tyne Models Northsider/Ironsider fitted with a directional  Kort, Mine is driven direct by a car heater motor and boy does she pull.

Hi Peter,

What sort of pollard pull does your tug have?

...Hi Jaguarfold...

Try getting in touch with Andy Kelly at Balne Moor M.B.C.
I got a text from him last week that he is selling a tug that i built a few years ago...
I reckon it fits your requirments...

Hi Dan,

It's only in the last few weeks I have had it on the water, and found the Speed Controllers a bit iffy, so bought a new one at Birchwood (A Model World) which will be fitted as soon as it arrives.
