My first look at a Forum page and already I'm getting a sudden pain in the wallet.  %)


I can see many rows to come with "Her Indoors" if I keep being tempted with stuff like that.

They look a lovely bit of kit for all the modern tug builders, but at what cost I wonder.

I think these are Schottel rudder propellers. I built my own for a German police boat from copper plumbing fittings and bevel gears. It works well enough if a bit noisy!
I couldn't match the standard of workmanship of these but I think mine cost about 20 so hey-ho...

Would like to see how the bottom end is done, very small bevel gears?
