Speed 600 in a Dickie
« on: October 25, 2012, 11:40:50 AM »

This is Charlie Gallichans Dickie tug trying to get on the plain. It is fitted with a speed 600 and runs on nicad's.
Great little tug you can have lots of fun with once you have gutted inside the hull and fitted what ever you have got at the time.

My old man has to play with things. He never leaves things standard for long and the good thing is I get to play with them, I mean test them.

Hello! I like the look of your boat im after something similar with my dickie tug.


I would like to ask which make of motor you fitted into your tug and what model it was? Also, what size and make of propeller did you fit? I originally put a graupner speed 400 in mine and it immediately burnt out even with a 30mm 3 blade propeller!!

Sorry about the long time it has taken me to reply to your questions but I will answer them all when I go to dads and get the tug up home.
