Looking for plans for a 9" to 12" tug like the salty


Are there plans for a tug that looks like the "salty" from Michels?



Mostly looking for the hull former shapes (cross sections). Will build to suit for xmas gifts ( now I get to use my new tools) I can resize to fit my application

Thanks

Yeah, I knew that was going to come back to haunt me I have a triangle planter in my yard that will only go weed and house pests. It is about 7' x 7' x 8' in size, so only little boats will work. I just want the shape of the hull.... the rest will be different for each nephew. They will only be able to play with them here, .... just for technical support you know I plan to see them more after x-mas, I have lots of Michal's $1 boats to tryout

I don't know about plans, but Microglass has a 9" fiberglass hull that you could R/C---.

What do you think they charge for the hull + shipping and do you know if they are in stock? Hee hee

Pick up a Lindberg tug and lift your lines from it's hull. The size is right in your specs. Then you can build the kit too. Win-Win.

The Francis Smith 'Harbor Tug' plan is similar to 'Salty'..

It could always be reduced to suit your needs..

Well, well Mr. Aero....Just couldn't let it be a surprise could you? It is going to be a Mini-tug of a Mini-tug LOL Same size as my Mini-Springer...4" x 9" is about right I think for a 2" x 4" type pond like at the trade shows It will be in the spirit as the puddle boat (very cute)..FUNtional I have sent away for a study package on the EZ Mini and will probably base it on that one. Well Mr. Aero....can you sleep now?

Have a great day
