If you ever wanted to sail the free waves towards the blurred line where the water meets the sky, you will need this new sweet nautical model to help you prepare.
The Tugboat is driven by a rubber-band motor. A reduction gear transfers energy to the drive wheel and further to the asymmetrical wheel pair. A pendulum slows and evens the motion of the tugboat. The winding key on the drive wheel is blocked by a ratchet gear and controlled by stop and start levers.
The asymmetry of the wheel pair grants the model its unique movement, imitating a boat rocking on the waves, while the working pendulum creates a specific noise similar to one produced by the real-life diesel motor many boats are equipped with.
The port is the gate of the sea. Open this gate, get ready for your journey, be the master of the harbour with your new sweet and reliable Tugboat from Ugears.
