This is the all new Tugster Tug Boat Kit!
Based on the popular "Springer" class tug boat models, this boat is almost too much fun!
Use this boat for fun, use it as a retreival boat or use it in competition.
With the included Push Knee kit, the Tugster is a water soccer animal!
Imagine a group of your friends pushing a mini soccer ball around a pond or large pool. The "goal" is to put the ball between the goal posts. Maybe there is a "goalie" watching the area.
Imagine the laughs and the looks of concentration on everyone's face! Priceless!
We make these kits out of wood that has small knots or plugs in it.
This wood is cosmetically unsuitable for our larger models, but perfectly suited for this kit.
Using this wood allows us to sell these kits at a really low price.
We supply premium grade 1/16 Aircraft plywood for the hull bottom.
