Looks good. I like the little compressor tucked away under the ladder.

Hi Darren
I all ways build my tug's for tug towing competitions
So a good bow thruster is needed well for me anyway
I leave the tube sticking out is only to get a good seal to the hull

Hope it help's Mate

Can I ask a pertinent question Jason, why is a good bow thruster needed for tug towing?As I have not yet seen a real harbour tug with a bow thruster.
