Brackengarth/Hollygarth
« on: March 06, 2007, 11:50:10 AM »

Thinking of building this little beauty from MMM, has anyone else tried!!??
After a fruitless search on the web I cannot find any good reference pics!
I understand it was called Henric for a while and was outfitted extensively from the original.
Any and all help gratefully received.
Hoping
The Pirate  :)

Nice powerfull tug, it will go well with 90mm prop and nozzle powered by car fan motor and 12volt battery, all available from Bryan, prop to match from prop shop. Very manoevrable boat with steering kort! You don't really need a bow thruster though I have seen them fitted.

He's ditched the fan motors - couldn't get any more since they moved the factory to Europe. He's now got some very smart looking new motors - about a tenth the size of the old ones ;D

To this you can add "1969 BRACKENGARTH, 1995 HENRIC, 1998 NJORD, 2001 NORD, 2001 NJORD, 2003 HENRIC"

I think there is a bit of confusion here. Brackengarth is listed as a sister ship - but cannot be sister of herself! I think that is probably just a transcription error.
Hollygarth is listed as having been laid down as Oakgarth but launched as Hollygarth. Brackengarth is listed as a sister ship, and both show the same builder, with dates of launch a few months apart (May and September).
Hollygarth was later named "Towing Wizard" and "Wizard".
You can find this info through http://users.skynet.be/sky42086/ [click on TugsList and follow directions] - but it is the same info as MikeK gave.

And a photo of "Brackengarth" at http://www.tugtalk.co.uk/images//2004/08/48639.jpg
