1205 Stan tug


Callieís graphics have been applied to the Monterey so all thatís left there is the first splash. Next up a Stan tug of some type. It will be a simple build detail wise. Not sure as yet which Stan tug but leaning toward a line handling version.

Filling in the holes after discovering that twin steerable Korts were not feasible.

In this case THREE (holes). However trying twin Korts was a teachable exercise so it was worth it.

Single screw, steerable nozzle......

I like a tug that is built using the "KISS" (keep it SIMPLE stupid) theory! And several of us, plenty of times, have won regatta events against "fancy" twin screw tugs.

I find I can concentrate on "driving" the boat in the course, rather than "operating" the boat. Other than "walking" off the dock, there is nothing that my twin screw, twin throttle, tug could do, that i can't do with a good steerable nozzle boat. You just need to know how to operate it.

Decided it will be a Damen 1205 Stantug simply built as a line handling tug. Will be some combination of these two tugs. Hull I have not exactly like the 1205 but since it will be a generic build that won’t be an issue.

Motor foundations built ( not installed) and shaft aligned with Kort.

The 1205 is a great looking little mooring tug. A line cage will look great.

Aligned the prop & shaft with the Kort. Epoxied motor foundations to the hull bottom & tied down the motor/gear reducer.

Trimmed the forming flash to conform to the hull outline leaving about a 1/4Ē wide flange around the perimeter. Bulwarks will eventually be set inboard of the perimeter flange.
