Magnetic Barge Catch™
Radio controlled barge catch and release system for use with the Vac-U-Tow towboat kit. Can be adapted for use in scratch-built boats. Requires a 3rd channel to operate the catch servo.
Great for hooking up to barges by remote control. Also not bad for recovery work if your other boat has a magnet mounted inside its hull in the right place.
Now you know what that bump in the bow of the Vac-U-Tow is for!
Comes fully assembled. Does not include the servo.
Includes a 1/2" x 1/2" cylinder rare earth magnet for your barge.
The assembly can be installed into a completed Vac-U-Tow hull, or you can install during the construction of the boat.
