Another Bantam Tug

September 19, 2017


Like Bob, Peter's started work on model Bantam tug.  They are both working from the same plans but ......... as often happens, well things go just a bit differently ! Peter's working with balsa and ply sheeting and has modified the stern to allow use of a kitchen rudder.  However, both boats will be the same size and have the same deck shape.

Despite seeming to be a simple shape to construct, the hull has turned out to present some unexpected complexities, especially in sheeting the stern parts of the hull.   The aft deck is raised to house a servo which controls the rudder shells.  A servo mounted in the forward part of the hull controls rudder movement and provides about +/- 45 degree rotation.
