I would like to find a 35-40 inch model of the type of tugs used on Narragansett Bay and coastal waters that look like an updated version of the Carol Moran.  Most have raised bridges on towers above the wheel house for seeing over barges being pushed.  The tugs are also used in docking large ocean going cargo ships and tankers in Providence.
These are not of the modern variety like the Tito Mare found in Europe.The Dumas Shelly Foss is too large and appears to be more modern.  The ones I see are similar to the picture under the add for the Maple Bay Regatta in this forum.
Any suggestions?  I have built about six of the Dumas type boat kits - Plank on frame and have them rc powered. Also build and fly RC airplanes.

Welcome to the fray. Check out Microglass.com for some good tug hulls. Also, this site:

offers a Carol Moran semi kit.

Good luck.
