This is a woody US One Meter made by Bob DeBow. It has been cleaned up and has a new skinned top deck. The next unique thing about it is that is has BRAND NEW just hung recently Chuck Black sails. That’s right two legends in one boat. I am trying to get my fleet to a manageable size really down to just three boats. I need room in the garage. I am going to be asking a modest $400 for this boat.

Tug #1: Seaport Tugboat with Lots of Upgrades SOLD Asking Price: $130.00 Runs great on 6-7.4v. 6v battery included. Radio: You supply a transmitter & receiver, and the rest is ready to run. Length: 24″ Width: 6″ Upgrades: I gutted and significantly upgrade the original toy boat. Deck: The deck has been stripped down, filled, and simplified. Towing: I added a custom towing bit that I 3D printed. It’s bolted to the deck via big strong washers and can be used for towing. Pushing: I outfitted the front with an array of fun tires that I salvaged from various toys. Fire monitor: I created a custom fire monitor system that includes a brass nozzle, water pickup, filter and a receiver controlled switch. It sprays about 5-6 feet. Motor: New low RPM motor, perfect for tugboats. ESC included with Anderson Powerpole connectors. I’ll knock $20 off the asking price if you don’t want this ESC. Prop & Shaft: I put in a new prop shaft, stuffing tube, and 3 blade prop. I was able to fit this nicely to the existing kort nozzle for good power. Servo: Includes a modern steering servo.
I had a lot of fun overhauling and upgrading this boat. I’m happy to pass it along. It would be perfect for someone who wants a retrieval boat or a great tugboat to enjoy with the kids.
