A bit of progress. Another chance for me to disguise hull differences. Tiger Sun hull is somewhat offset from the FERRIBY. After much thinking & experimentation I think I can get a good result.

Cool for sure! When can you ship it?
Actually I intend to rip out the deck beams and start over. They did not look right...didn't feel right...didn't sit right so they AIN'T right! Letiing it sit for a day or so. Will do some small stuff on the Buddy Davis. Why I always try to have two projects underway at the same time. Keeps the frustration level down.

Burned in the second drive today after changing the as-received LH prop for the included RH prop. Allows me to have port drive spin the LH prop outward as well as spinning the Stb'd prop outward. Props turning outward should provide optimal handling; particularly in small spaces.

I believe someone in another of my threads re Graupner Schotels advised filling the prop tube full with grease. Was that to prevent water from entering the drive? I lubed mine to cover the prop's lower gears.

I think Graupner has a hidden treason to have you burn them in. At least for the way I did it. Disassembling the unit/re-assembling it, running, disassembling it again gives one a true appreciation of getting that little pin back in the prop shaft and removing/re-installing the e-ring on top of the drive gear for the prop. Would have been easier to install both in the hull & then burn in. However, not really possible when it's snowing here.

Bob,
Another FERRIBY reference.
http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/...p?lid=2614299#

Did some necessary but boring stuff today like giving the backing blocks for the drives & motors a coat of West epoxy. Still messing with location for the steering servos. Parts from M.A.C.K hopefully arrive tomorrow to help solve the servo riddle.

Bill ,
Pardon my ignorance -and stop me if I'm wrong.. Ferriby is the name of a tug? and not the type of tug? Whatever..it's a sweet looking boat! Low center of G..a lot of stuff happening on that super structure. Love the windows..Nice Choice!
I got a kick looking up ships on that ship spotting site...
I don't know if you've seen this site if not check it out-I spend a lot of time seeing whose where (Cruise ships,tankers, yachts,tugs,research,oil rigs..So many ships out there in real time!

Bob,
I subscribe to marinetraffic.com. Lot of fun playing with it. FERRIBY, the tug's name, is owned by Svitzer a subsidiary of MAERSK Lines. See http://svitzer.com/

The tug is a 24511 ASD built by Damen. See http://products.damen.com/en/ranges/...g/asd-tug-2411.

Wheel house will be a challenge among other head-scratchers.
