Victory Tug

I was thinking about the Dumas victory Tug as a steam project. The Tug seems a little small at 28" I wonder if a 31/2 " boiler would fit along with the other gear. Has anyone built the victory Tug, is there a larger one.

Use the search feature on this site, there are several builds.

If you do steam, it will be the first I have seen !

Looking forward to that.

How about this one? It's a five foot long version of the "Jenny Wilson"; the first iron pilot boat in New Orleans. It was built by Don Ciucci of the San Francisco Model Yachy Club and is powered by a Stuart twin (single expansion).

Gary,

I built the 28 inch Victory tug. It probably is a little small for steam. But you can upscale the plans to 40 inches or more. Check out the build by "ooby" on Scale boats, he upscaled it to 56 inches.

I think the Victory tug would be a good boat for a steam plant. The entire upper structure lifts off to give you good access to the inside of the hull. Plus with the cabin doors open and the rear doors open it would give you good ventilation. Also the wide tug boat hull is very stable.
