Yes, mine is one of Orion's but I've had it on the slip for about a year as other projects have taken too long!


Anth makes a good hull Butts  :-))

Yes, this will be the second in a row.

The first one made a really good towing boat :-)) 

The schottels I've ordered are similar, but they do not have brass props, but now come with brushless motors fitted - just add a servo :-))

As promised here are a couple of photos of the Oceanworks schottels. I am very pleased with the quality as I hope is evident in these photos.  These are listed as 100mm, the size being taken at the rear wider end. At the business end they are 90mm and the props are 80mm.  The website shows the schottels as having nylon props, but Victor has upgraded them to brass as you can see.  The drive is a brushless 800 Kv motor. You just need to add a servo.  The depth required in the hull is about 90mm.
One tip to remember, if you order larger sizes they come in two parcels which was not clear to me and that did not show up in the tracking.

Yes, for some reason the site did not like this photo when I uploaded the others >>:-( ?
The price is really good - $180 for this size - and it is big, 20cm top to toe

The price looks good compared to other Schottel's of that size Michael, I like the drive set up the only limiting factor will be the hight with the motor on top, as I have just said quality looks good. It will be interesting to get your review on them once you have them fitted and running.

You're right Brian, they are big!

The nozzles themselves are exactly the size shown on the Artic plans and I'm sure I can get them under the deck. I have to confess though I was a little surprised by the overall size %%


I will update when I get them fitted.

Michael.

Well impressed with those curved bulwarks Brian - and the stern roller looks superb. She's looking more shipshape with every update - great stuff  :-))

Hi Brian,
This is becoming my go to thread for inspiration for my own tug build.

Another question if you don't mind... What are you using for the fender supports ~ plastic 'L' strips?

regards
