Buddy “L" Tug Boat
This Buddy ‘L” Model appeals to boys because it not only looks like a
big boat but it actually runs like one.
OPERATION: Air is pumped into a large, separate air tank, built into the
hull of the boat, with an ordinary bicycle pump—when this air is
released it operates an ingenious air motor, directly connected to the
tank, and this rotates the brass, three-blade type propeller and sends
the craft through the water. The speed is governed by a regulating valve
on the stern deck and direction of travel is controlled by special
steering device which locks the rudder in any position desired.
THE HULL is 27” long from bow to stern, 5” deep from deck to keel, built
of heavy 20-gauge non-rusting terne plate steel and embodies the
beautiful, graceful lines of the snappiest craft afloat.
CABIN is l2’2” long by 434” wide, 214” high from main deck to roof.
PILOT HOUSE is 2’4” high, 43k” long and 234” wide, fitted with
headlight. Upper deck is enclosed by 1” brass railing. Stack is 1’ 2 in
diameter by 4’4” long.
AIR MOTOR is enclosed in the hull with the controls projecting through
the deck. It is very simple—requires no attention and will last
FINISHED with two coats beautiful green enamel with red trim.
DIMENSIONS: Length over all, 27’,; width, 61,4”; height, 11”.
