Advice for a newbie: Steam Tug Portwey
« on: September 25, 2011, 09:02:41 AM »

Hi All

I'm planning my first boat build in about 12 years and like the look of
http://www.stportwey.co.uk/

I was surprised I could not find a kit for this tug but would be ok modifying another kit.

Could any of you recommend a kit or hull that I could use??


thanks in advance

That's an awefull lot of planning you intend to do,  {-) {-)

seriously though, I think a company called Kingston Moulddings do a hull similar to the Portway that you could adapt.
I remember a chap at one of my nightschool classes some years ago bought one, and although it was not detailed( didn't contain plate lines, hawse holes etc, it was a nicely moulded hull.....try there for their hull and see if it fit's the bill.

yes, that's the one I had thought of Peter.

would be easy enough to put twin screws on that little boat.
