Well I think it's time I invested in the kit to build Alexander towage tug collingwood. Seeing as Iam probably the youngest to captain her lol. Just don't know wether to go with shottle units or reshape the Underneath of the aft end and fit a couple of kort nozzles and a bow thruster

Surely having Captained my Lady Sarah at the show at Ellesmere Port with independant schottles  you should know the answer. Yes they cost a bit but will save having to cut and rebuild the hull and will react more like the real boat on the water

Excuse the ignorance guys, but does Collingwood have Voiths or Schottels?

Thanks for the pictures John.
Looks the business that hull shape.


Is that overspray on your brown bin?
Perhaps I'm not the only one to use it as a paint stand  %) %)
