Topless Vac-U-Tow

The low cabin outline gives you a thick firm deck with an easily trimmed opening for access to the workings of the boat. A trim-ledge leaves you a framed opening that allows you to cover the opening with a flat piece of plastic to waterproof your hull.

 Build your own custom superstructure using this deck as the foundation. Great for static-builders who want to get their feet wet!

Now available for the single-screw Vac-U-Tow and twin-screw Vac-U-Tow 2.

This kit has all of the below-deck parts, a plain deck with only a pair of 1:48 scale Tow Knees, a 1:48 scale Stack, Rubber Rub Rail, and Rubber Tow Knee Pads.

Twin-Screw version has 2 Stacks.

Standard Hatch version. Same hatch dimensions as the standard single or twin screw towboat. The cabin has the same outline as the standard Vac-U-Tow cabin.

Narrow Hatch version. This hatch base is the same width as the cabin to allow you to frame a cabin rearward over the stern.

Now listed in the Kits, Parts, & Accessories page.
