Update on tug

She got her maiden voyage today. I also got the “Emergency Breakaway” tow line system installed and it works great. I will get pics of that soon.

I had some electronic problems with her. She appeared to be signal losing signal while only about 50 yards away. She was shutting completely down. I may need to route the receiver antenna back up out of the hull? Also for some reason the ESC auto settings got confused and my throttle settings were not where they should have been. I’m not sure what is going on there, but everything worked fine in the ship yard before the first cruise. I may try the stock Aqua Craft ESC in it next time.

She has very weak thrust with the current prop although she was realistic at full throttle.

All in all…she will become a good little tug…with some more work.
