Aquacraft Atlantic Horbar Tug
has any one had any insight on this tug. its a RTR and a nice piece. i have not put it in the water yet but it seems a bit fast seeing the video. it has the same motor there speed hull has. other than that it looks like a lot of fun. the running lights housing are put on wrong but with all the lights its ok. i think the mast lights are not right. they should be all white, there not.
tower will be selling it but its not in stock yet. here is the one i got and Aquacraft's.

Great looking barge - any dimensions? 4' long by etc? I have a smaller one but this looks like the next generation up. Is it open underneath for weight?
|Mar 28, 2006, 06:47 PM|
The barge is 12" wide and not open underneath. The guy wanted a strong barge with a notch for his Atlantic tug and built so that it would not sink. So the top half of the barge is stuffed with Styrofoam sheeting and the hull is fiberglassed.
I have drawings for this barge and one a little larger for tugs link Mr. Darby on the Yahoo tugs and tows group in the files section.

Add three pounds of weight to the tug plus 3300 mah batteries and it is a whole different unit. For ballast in barge use the Crystal Geyser water bottles 1 gal square type. Repair barge is cool. Built my 4 foot to take 6 gal jugs and it a real unit to practise with.
