New Tug on the way ( ASD Tug from MMB )
« on: April 05, 2016, 07:33:20 PM »

I have ordered my next tug build which is a ASD Tug from MMB, it comes as a semi kit and should arrive by the end of next week. The kit comes with 45mm nozzles but as I want it for towing these he is going to replace with 50mm, I am looking at fitting 555 high torque motors driving 50mm 4 blade brass props so it should be fine with lots of power, your thoughts on this set up  So all I can add for now is watch this space.

Regards Dave.

   Not sure about the 50mm Korts and props for towing especially with the size of the boat, I have 70mm Korts on my tugs with either a pair of T12's or scooter/fan motors these tugs are very powerful. If you contact one of the guys from Balne moor (competition this weekend on sunday) they are really helpful. Good luck.
       Regards,
            Faz. :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))

Hi Faz, I spoke to Mark when I placed the order and he said when he built his it was taken to Balne moore  and it towed the San George around with his standard set up no problem, so I should be ok with the set up I have now gone for as motors and props have now been ordered. Time will tell. :-)) :-)) :-)) And yours looks very good john and on standard set up too......Does it pull ok.

Regards Dave.

Hi Ray, No mate once I have made my mind up I go full out, I have to keep my mind active or I would go nuts with boredom....not much fun being stuck in a wheelchair so I get my wife to throw me in my shed and I'm happy as long as the supply of coffee keeps coming. Thanks John so I should be fine with a 50mm set up running on 12 volts. :-)) :-)) :-))

Regards Dave.

Hi Dave. I bought the ASD in your pictures from Mark and have no problems towing with it. It's even better for free handling being very manoueuvrable due to it having independent kort nozzles. Thoroughly recommended.

It sure is mate, we have a Tug Towing event at our club planed for the 26th June so I am hoping that she will be ready to take part in that. It will all depend on what goes on with getting my leg sorted.....with the way things are going I don't think anything will happen for a long while yet with these strikes the Doctors keep having my op will be put on the list like everyone else.

Regards Dave.

Ok made a start, first job was to mark out were the korts were they were to be located. Once I was happy and the measurements were checked again and again two 5mm holes were drilled. Once the korts were lined up they were fixed in place with P38 filler, this has now been left to fully harden I will then go over them again with Fast glass resin.

No expert on these matters but is that car body filler holding in  your Kort nozzles? Some people say it is not waterproof and allso weak. Just a thought but a nice build log by the way, regards, Dave.

Yes, it is car body filler. You are correct, it is not waterproof which is why MD will go over it with resin.
It is useful for the first fix because it goes off nice and fast.

Hi Dave, I will be going over the filler with resin mate... I have always fitted them this way and up to now I have never had any problems. I would think we all do things different and I'm sure others will let us know there way of doing this part of the build.  :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))
