Voith Schneider Tractor Tug
« on: January 28, 2011, 02:57:57 PM »

Some pictures of the Tractor Tug I recently bought.

I have repainted to deck etc and will repaint the hull next.

Fitted my RC gear, 4 channel, although just using 3 to run.

Pictures taken at Kirkless MBC Wilton Park last Sunday, most of the pond was frozen but still plenty to have a go at.

Must of been this one for sale :D, I got it a couple of weeks ago, give a a bit of a paint to put my mark on it like you do...and added radio gear and some deck clutter and ropes etc, will do more as I go.

Poll (John) who sold it was very helpful and gave lots of good advice, great fella.

Thanks ray111,
John told me a good builder had originally made it from a kit.
I believe it is a Sirmar kitty hull kit and is still availble from "psships" who are now looking after the Sirmar products.
They have a web site
http://psships.com/page4a.html

and go to tugs at the top and you will see the R.M.A.S. Kitty there.

Your lastest project twin voith tug looks really good!

Any chance you could take a few pictures and either post them up our e-mail me them would be even better, as it would be a great help as I am going to make a new (and keep the oringianl one) upper deck / cabin structure etc and the pics would be fantastic to have of the kitty as it is now.
Cheers,
Peter.

I will try, but wont be that good.
She is 1 of the ex RMAS Triton Class water tractors.
If you google RMAS Kitty a few images are there.

Also try these:

A170    Kitty                                
A172      Lesley                     
A174    Lilah                 
A190           Joan                 
A199           Myrtle                        
A205           Norah

All the same class.

I thought tractor tugs had the voiths mounted a third of the way aft from the bow of the boat?  Might be wrong?

Hello

You are right Russ and I'm also suprised with this Voith units mounted under the stern of htug boat . All stern drive tug are with Azimuthal like Schottel, Aquamaster, Nigaata. I've seen only one stern drive with Voith she was a japanese test durin 60's or 70's.  But there is also voith mounted like that on river pusher
