Greenock tugs
« on: February 13, 2007, 09:09:29 AM »

Guys,
Can you give me an idea of which hulls/plans I could use to model the Greenock Tug 'Warrior'?

                 ...Hi Dave...

You have picked the only one that hasn,t got a kit available...

Tyne Models produce the "FLYING PHANTOM" & "FLYING SPINDRIFT" in kit form...

Mobile Marine Models produce "ELDERGARTH" which is now "SHANNON"

Jan Meerbeek produces a Damen 3110 model in kit ("SVITZER MULL"  or (SVITZER MALLAIG") This kit is a bit too small for Tug-Towing...

If you contact Svitzer at their offices in Greenock they might be able to get you a set of plans for "WARRIOR"... Or go down to James Watt Dock & speak to the guys on the tugs...They are normally very helpful...

I will have a wee look around Tonight to see if i can find anything out for you...

"WARRIOR" was built in Japan ( I think) So this might be a bit harder to get plans....

  ...See You on Sunday...Best Regards...Norry...

Norry, you can hardly compare the Damen 3110 ASD tug design to the design of the Svitzer M-type. Alltough of almost similar size these designs are quite different in many points of construction. The Svitzer M-types were designed at UAB Baltic Engineering Centre (www.bec.lt), a subsidary of Odense Steelshipyard.
