Not me,...
Poll, and Nicholas have built a version of the original carrousel  tug test bed.
We also talked about Poll building the Carrousel Rave Tug with Voith Schneider Propellers

Does Portland, or even Peterhead, have that white dome @ 1:21, or that  cruise ship quay and all those cranes?

Hello


Yep it's Southampton during a Workboat Exhibition - with the Apex from Fawley Terminal as playing partner.

She came to Southampton just for this event - then the Ugie Runner is well stationned at Peterhead, I took pictures of her in that place.






Aimée, about your RAVE project, is it with Graupner Voith ?  I've made a try and it's not possible with Graupner Voith and this kind of joystick - this direction control system have to be replaced

I am not heading toward a RAVE, I do want to build the Spinola, of Malta Tugs.

Is it that the ends are too narrow to mount the fwd/rev servo?
Perhaps the motors mounted out to the bow and stern, and then a bell crank for the fwd/rev control.
The steering servo could be mounted to the inside on the center line.

I had to get creative when I built the LA Fireboat #2. It was so narrow, at drive scale, that I
ended up mounting the fwd/rev servos upside down on a bridge.
