JERSEY CITY. (Harbour Tug)
The Jersey City Tug boat is still sailing today in New York Harbour. Built to pull trains on barges across to Long Island, at the time there was no rail bridge to Long Island.
Today it is used as a general towing boat. Unfortunately it is not known what those uses are.
Whilst not a tug in the conventional English build, it is a tug for the American New York harbour, with their own particular build style for the work they did and therefore as a tug has quite a good pull to it.
The Jersey City model was built about 2 years ago. It’s sprayed in its original colours. Comes complete with an MFA motor (equivalent to a Speed 600), 40mm Brass propeller, rudder servo and 50 amp speed controller. It has LED Navigation lights, front search light as well as interior lighting. It also has a purpose made clear acrylic boat stand, which sets it off nicely.
The Jersey City’s condition overall is very good. I have just run out of storage space. As I use a 2.4 radio system, you will need to install a Receiver, Battery and provide a transmitter.
