PUG

Postby Grand Chillin » Mon Sep 19, 2011 8:09 pm

While wating for plwood to arrive I decided to go ahead and build the form for the PUG. :D it really gives an idea of how big this little tug will be 13' in lenght and a 6' 2" beam. I'm already thinking about for going with the electric inboard setup and using a small outboard in a well instead :shock: :roll:

Watts in equal Watts out!

What that says is: "The power your looking for at the Prop, will come from whatever or How Many sources of power you want to use.

So one electric motor and one battery is a pretty quiet ride. The only tether is that Battery charger.

The little outboard is noisier, and only needs fuel.

Since this is such a little boat, the "BIG" trolling motor, and a "BIG" battery will weigh about the same as that outboard and Gas tank.
Just sayin.... :roll: all that noise and gas smell... :cry:

Had enough of my meddling yet? :lol:
