Another Bantam Tug

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.
