Looks good on the water, and seems to have adequate power. Still have not had the time to figure out why the rudder in my 1/32 YTL, was acting up at Tug Fest. Charlie

Hi Tim, I tried to shoot some video today, but it came out poorly....sound kinda Karpy (.sp).
Hi Charlie, hope your rudder issues get figured out soon...maddening huh? Good to see you and hope you come to visit us again.
Hi Kmot, the Golden is pretty easy to keep. Doesn't eat much, and haven't heard him bark yet.
Hi Green Boat....funny thing the TV in the family room is half as loud as it used to be. Just a coincidence...I'm sure.
And thanks to all for your kind comments.

I operated one of these in Vietnam. Always wanted to build a model.

Tugboat Reliant

Hi ST2153,
If you ever get out to the SF Bay Area, let me know that your are coming and I will do my best to make sure Reliant is on Spreckles Lake and I'll let you drive her. She is the best tugboat that I've built so far - powerful, very maneuverable, and not a lot of cabin area to get caught by the wind.

I think you would enjoy taking her for a spin.
